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 afield 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 drink 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 historic tour of the beautiful City of Lincoln! All runners will head into uphill Lincoln, pass the Cathedral, run through the grounds of the Castle and into the main city centre. After passing the beautiful Brayford waterfront and winding through the University of Lincoln grounds, runners will loop back and start running ‘up, up, up’ towards the Lincolnshire Showground - we couldn’t organise a half marathon in Lincoln without treating you to a hill!

Although a hill is guaranteed, we promise to set up a lively music hotspot 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.

THE RELAY

This is an awesome chance to be a part of the inaugural Lincoln Half Marathon 2016 for those that don't fancy the full 13.1 miles, so grab a friend and get running!

The change over point will be in Castle Square, a beautiful historic centre in the Bailgate area of Lincoln. The first person will run from the Lincolnshire Showground to Castle Square and the second person will run from Castle Square, into Lincoln City Centre and back to the Showground.

There's going to be a music hot spot in castle square so everyone can get pumped and ready to run once their partner reaches them. The change over point also offers plenty of parking and cafes for competitors and spectators alike.

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 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.
