ENTRIES NOW OPEN!!

The general entries to the 2017 Lincoln Half Marathon are now open.

THE COURSE

The Lincoln Half Marathon start and finish will be within the Lincolnshire Showground, making it the perfect spot for those coming from Lincoln or further afar with plenty of space and on site parking.

The Showground will act as our race hub and there will be DJs and bands, along with fantastic food and drinks vendors to keep you all on your feet and happy before and after the race!

The course will not disappoint those who are hoping for a full tour of the beautiful city of Lincoln. The route will pass along the Fossdyke Canal, through the stunning Brayford Wharf, before heading uphill towards historic Lincoln to take in the sights of Lincoln Castle and Cathedral, before returning to finish at the Lincolnshire Showground.

Although a hill is promised, we also promise a music hotspot set up on Yarborough Road which will help keep you motivated all the way to the top!

THE LOCATION

The home of the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln has so much to offer as a half marathon location, for both the runners and the spectators.

Whether you want to wander the beautiful streets of uphill Lincoln taking in all the quaint shops, galleries and cafes, or you want to learn the history of this fascinating city by exploring the Castle or climbing into the rafters of the Cathedral, participants and their friends and family certainly won’t be lost for something to do over the race weekend.

EVENT CHARITY

ETHAN MAULL ‘UP YOURS TO CANCER’ FOUNDATION

The Lincoln Half Marathon will be supporting a fantastic local charity, The Ethan Maull ‘Up Yours to Cancer’ Foundation, which is ultimately aiming to fund a home in Lincoln where families can stay whilst their children receive Cancer treatment. This is a charity that is close to our hearts at OSB Events.

We’re so happy that we’re able to support them in their mission to improve facilities to families whose children are affected by Cancer in Lincoln and the surrounding areas.

EVENT CHARITY

CANCER RESEARCH UK

The event will also be supporting Cancer Research UK, which is the world’s leading charity dedicated to saving lives through research. They receive no government funding and rely on people like you to help fund their groundbreaking work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.

People’s chances of surviving cancer has doubled in the past 40 years, however, more than one in three of us will still get cancer at some point.
