Race Date- 15th July 2012
Limited to 500 runners
Following on from the fantastic 2010 and 2011 race we are pleased to announce that the 2012 Grimsthorpe Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 15th July at Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire. This fantastic trail race is set at the Grimsthorpe Castle estate in south Lincolnshire and boasts fantastic scenery and wildlife. The race is open to novice runners and club runners which creates a great atmosphere as familys come to pic nic on the grass while the runners weave through the castle grounds.
A mid morning start (exact time to be confirmed) will see runners complete 13.1 miles on an inspiring route that captures the imagination in some of Lincolnshire’s most beautiful surroundings. The finish line welcomes runners directly in front of the castle itself.
Marshals will provide water at checkpoints every 3- 4 miles. Toilet facilities and car parking will be provided. Please be aware that non-competitors will be required to pay £5 each to enter the Grimsthorpe estate (estate rules).
Grimsthorpe Half Marathon competitors must be at least 18 years of age on the day of the race.
