Further information

Why not take part?

The Market Deeping Rotary charity run for 2022 will be on Sunday, May 22nd. Both the 3 k Fun Run and the 10 k Road Race are licensed by England Athletics. The 3 k Fun Run starts at 10:00 am, and the 10 k Road Race begins at 11:00 am. Both runs this year will use chip timing for the first time. 

Venue


Both runs start and finish in the playing fields at the Deeping 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 no secure kit storage is available.


The 3 k Fun Run uses roads in the housing estate to the west of the playing fields. The 10 k 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 fields. Both races finish back on the playing field.

Both races take place on roads not closed to traffic, therefore runners must pay particular attention at all times and comply with any marshal’s instructions. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.

Please note that on safety grounds and in accordance with EA rules, runners must not wear earphones (bone-conducting earphones excepted). Failure to do so may result in disqualification.


3 k Fun Run


The entry fee for the 3 k Fun Run is £4.00 if you enter online. If there are fewer than 400 online entries, we also accept entries on the day when the entry fee will be £5. There is no age restriction for entry, but runners under nine years of age must be accompanied by an adult. 


All finishers will receive a commemorative medal.

When you make your online entry, you will receive a confirmation email and can then collect your race number and timing chip from the race registration desk on the day of the race. The registration desk will be open from 8:30 am to 10 am.


10 k Road Race


The entry fee for online entry for the 10 k Road Race is £13.00 if you are an affiliated runner £15.00 if you are not. (Affiliated runners are members of running clubs affiliated to England Athletics who have also paid the personal affiliation fee. If you are an affiliated runner, you will have an official EA number which you will need to give at the time of your entry).


If there are fewer than 400 online entries, we will also accept entries on the day, and the entry fee will be £20 for both affiliated and un-affiliated members.


The minimum age for the Road Race is 15 years on the day of the race.


There will be trophies for:


1st, 2nd, and 3rd male and male veteran (over 40 years of age)

1st, 2nd, and 3rd female and female veteran (over 35 years of age).

1st, 2nd, and 3rd male team (4 to count)

1st and 2nd female teams (3 to count)


The first three overall places take precedence over age prizes and you cannot win both. If you finish in the first three in either the men’s or ladies race then the age prize will go to the next fastest runner in the age category (over 40 for men, over 35 for ladies)


Entries on the day will qualify for Individual prizes but will not qualify for Team prizes, this is because all entries on the day will be treated as unattached as we will not be able to check individual England Athletics URN numbers. Only runners who have pre-entered online and have entered a valid individual URN number will qualify for the team prizes.

All finishers will receive a commemorative medal.

When you make your online entry, you will receive a confirmation email and can then collect your race number and timing chip from the race registration desk on the day of the race. The registration desk will be open from 8:30 am to 11:00 am.


Parking


The car park at the leisure centre is available for us to use and holds nearly 200 cars, but competitors are advised to share cars if possible. We are asked not to park on Spalding Road itself, and the limited parking at the Rugby Club is reserved for race officials.


Medical assistance will be available on the day, both on the course and in the Clubhouse.


Refreshments will be available in the Clubhouse in the morning, and a licensed bar will be open from 11:00 am.

Any queries raised will be resolved on the day by the race referee whose decision is final.

Runners can collect a printout of their results immediately after they have finished their run. Full race results will be available immediately after the races on https://www.chiptimingsolutions.com and the Rotary website as soon as possible after Sunday on https://www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/homepage.php?ClubID=413.
