The Rotary Club of the Deepings Charity Runs
May 17th 2020
The Market Deeping Rotary Charity Runs for 2020 will be on Sunday, May 17th. Both the 3k Fun Run and the 10k Road Race are licensed by England Athletics. The 3k Fun Run starts at 10-00 a.m. and the 10k Road Race starts at 11-00 a.m. Both runs this year will use chip timing for the first time.
Both runs start and finish in the playing field of The Deepings Rugby Club which is situated on Spalding Road in Deeping St. James. The Rugby Clubhouse on the field is used as the administration centre for both runs. The clubhouse has both toilets and changing rooms but there is no secure kit storage available. There are also changing rooms, toilets and showers available in the Leisure Centre across the road from the Rugby Club.
The 3k Fun Run uses roads in the housing estate to the west of the playing field. The 10k Road race, which is over a measured course, starts on the same route but then uses open country roads to the east of the playing field. Both runs finish back on the playing field.
Please note that on safety grounds and in accordance with E.A. rules runners must not wear earphones (bone-conducting earphones). Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
