Derby County Community Trust are pleased to announce a new date for the Derby 10K which was due to take place on Sunday 29th March.
The new date will be 25th October 2020.
Subject to the lifting of current government advice and information on the resumption of professional football which could affect the availability of Pride Park Stadium, the race is scheduled to start at 9am as initially planned, with all other aspects of the race including the route, parking and baggage facilities remaining unchanged.
The race generates in excess of £70K for the Derby County Community Trust and other local, regional and national charities.
Anybody who had signed up to the original race will be asked to confirm their place or be given the option to transfer their place to another competitor. The form can be accessed here and will be circulated to all runners by email.
All runners who signed up before the postal deadline of 28th February 2020 will have received their race packs before 29th March and have been asked to store these safely wherever possible. However, the replacement race number fee will be waived if runners need to replace their numbers in October.
Any participants who signed up after the 28th February but before the postponement announcement of 16th March will not have received their race pack in the post and will be asked to collect these as planned in the week leading up to race week, along with all fun run numbers.
Additional collection points and times will be arranged to accommodate the need for replacement numbers.
Our priority currently lies with ensuring existing participants are able to re-register or transfer their places, but new entries into the race will be accepted once the announcement of government advice regarding mass participation events is made and 2020/21 professional football fixtures are confirmed.
