The Lincoln Half Marathon takes place on 1st October 2017 at the Lincolnshire Showgrounds.
Late entries are being accepted until 25th September, and this is a fantastic chance for anyone who is race fit to run an early autumn race in a stunning setting and earn an impressive medal.
Anyone entering the Lincoln Half Marathon from now until 25th September will need to collect their race pack from Lincolnshire Showground the day before the race, and should be aware that their name will not be printed on the race number.
This beautiful half marathon, organised by OSB Events, is returning for its second year and is looking forward to welcoming runners old and new to the streets of Lincoln this autumn.
The Lincolnshire Showground provides a perfect race hub and it is here that the 13.1-mile race starts and finishes. It is an ideal venue for athletes and spectators to gather and cheer as the runners head out on the closed-road course into Lincoln, past the city’s historical sights and around the vibrant harbour of the Brayford Waterfront.
Runners will pass along the Fossdyke Canal and through Brayford Wharf before heading uphill on Yarborough Road to take in the magnificent sights of Lincoln Castle and Cathedral. The music hotspot and plentiful support on the hill climb keeps runners motivated right to the top, and the historic landmarks make Lincoln a truly impressive half marathon location.
The Lincoln Showground offers plenty of space and on-site parking for competitors and their friends and family, ensuring ease of access on race day whether travelling from Lincoln or further afield. It promises to be a lively race hub, with DJs and bands as well as fantastic food and drink vendors throughout the morning. Many athletes use the event as a chance to enjoy a weekend away in Lincoln, exploring the quaint shops, galleries, cafes and fascinating history.
The Lincoln Half Marathon is supporting two Event Charities, Cancer Research UK and local charity The Ethan Maull ‘Up Yours to Cancer’ Foundation, both of which are charities close to the heart at OSB Events.
The course records for the Lincoln Half Marathon were set at the inaugural 2016 event and stand at 1:08:15 (male) and 1:24:23 (female).
Sponsors of the Lincoln Half Marathon include HIGH5, Erdinger Alkoholfrei, David Lloyd, Wright Vigar, Running Imp, Lincs FM and City of Lincoln Council.
