Watermead Challenge 2020

Entries for 2020 are currently suspended due to the Coronovirus issue. This is purely to limit the number of entry fee refunds that may have to be made. However, at present we intend to hold the event and will review the decision at the end of April. Further information will be provided at that time when hopefully we will be able to confirm the go ahead and re-open entries. Thank you for your patience.

This popular 5 mile and 3 mile charity run around Watermead Country Park near Syston to the north of Leicester takes place this year on Tuesday 7th July at 7pm. 

The course is mostly off road and flat, offering the opportunity to complete a personal best time. The run is chip timed from gun to finish mat, and the 5 mile run has an official course measurement certificate. 

Proceeds will be distributed to local and other charities. There are no administration costs as all organisers and helpers are volunteers.

 Details including runners instructions, a map of the course route and this years poster can be found by clicking on the links below.

 There will be commemorative medals for all entrants, bottled water and energy bars as usual. Portaloos on site this year. Mobile snack wagon provided by Leicester Hospitals Childrens School. 

Thank you as always for your support

Santa Sleigh and Asda Collections at Christmas 2019 

Wreake Valley Rotary Club Charity Santa Sleigh and Asda Thurmaston Bucket Collection in December 2019 Thanks to everyone who supported our collections in December. Sorry one or two nights with the Santa Sleigh had to be cancelled due to bad weather. However, the overall result was a total collection of just over 4,000 which is a very pleasing result.  Most of these proceeds will be distributed amongst local charities and worthy causes in 2020.These include Leonard Cheshire Home in Sileby, Thurmaston Brownies and Leicestershire Life Education charity. We look forward to your continued support in December 2020.  Thank you once again.
