Description

Set in the beautiful grounds of Grimsthorpe Castle, in the delightfully charming Lincolnshire countryside just 10mins off the A1. This event makes for a perfect summer race, whether you take on the family friendly 5k or go for the longer challenges of  10k, 10miles or 13.1 miles.

THIS RACE HAS COVID SAFETY RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE FOR YOU

The 4 routes take you past various delights within the private grounds including the castle, lake, tree lined tarmac avenues, ancient woodland along grassed paths and a Victorian railway culvert. The train line no longer exists, but the 10 and 13.1 mile routes travel along this section and take you to a part of the world generally unseen by the public.

The race start/finish line will be in front of the castle along the driveway, offering a unique venue. We will have the usual friendly event atmosphere that we bring to all of our races, & amazing bling - making this perfect for your 1st, 2nd or 100th race!

Like our other races we hope you'll come as a family and take the opportunity to enter the 'little legs' into the 5k race. A simple, not too challenging distance that we invite ages of 4+ along to. Plus ALL finishers receive a bespoke race medal!

Please note elevation on the route maps - you start up at the Castle & run downhill towards the lake - there are several undulations (hills) on the course with outstanding views.
