Reasons to enter early...
18th March 2018
The Langtoft 10k and 3k take place on Sunday, 6 May and entries have been filling up quickly since the online entry system opened in January.
With a race limit of 400 for the 10k and no entries being taken on the day this year, runners are encouraged to sign up via the race website at the earliest opportunity. Entries for the 3k will be sold on the day but are also available online.
The fun run starts at 10:15am with the 10k following an hour later.
As usual there will be medals for all finishers and trophies in a range of categories. In addition, anyone breaking the male or female 10k course record will win a £100 cash prize, and there are also £25 cash prizes for the first male and female 10k finishers aged under 25.
All proceeds from the event are donated to local groups and charities.
Race committee chairman Martin Tooth said: “We’ve seen record 10k numbers in each of the last five years and hope to continue that growth this year.
“We always receive great support from the people of Langtoft and surrounding areas and look forward to welcoming spectators and volunteers to the village once more.
“Our online system makes entering easier than ever this year but we would encourage people to sign up early to avoid missing out.”
The heartbeat of Langtoft's community spirit
15th January 2018
The efforts of Langtoft Road Run entrants helped provide a cash boost to six local charities and organisations in 2017.
More than 600 people entered last year’s Langtoft 10k road race and 3k fun run.
The proceeds of the event are always donated to charity, with thousands of pounds raised for good causes since it was first held in the late 1980s.
2017’s recipients were:
Langtoft Primary School
Bumps 2 Four
Langtoft Deepings & District Royal British Legion
Langtoft United FC
Deeping Tennis Club
A record number of people entered last year and the Langtoft Road Run committee is busy planning for 2018’s race day, which will be the 29th event.
It will take place on Sunday, May 6th, with the 3k fun run starting at 10:15am and the 10k one hour later.
Committee member Sue Archer said: “Race day is a much-loved event in the village’s calendar."
“It brings together people from Langtoft, but also many neighbouring areas.
“And as the race has grown in popularity over the past few years, runners have been coming from far and wide.
“We look forward to welcoming everyone again in 2018.”
