Rugby Runners’ handicap race on Saturday, August 22

Rugby Runners’ Summer 5km Handicap race is open to all runners in town – members or non members with all abilities welcome.

Everyone is invited on Saturday, August 22 for Rugby Runners’ inaugural club 5km Summer Handicap Run.

The format is very simple for this competitive but fun event:

You simply need to arrive at the athletics track next to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre at 8.45am and declare your predicted 5km time to the organisers.

Entry is £2 to cover refreshments.

The slowest runners will start first at approximately 9.15am and if the organisers do a good job with the predictions then all the athletes should finish together!

There are prizes for the first three across the line. The race is open to runners 15 years old and upwards.
