"A 10km road race through the historic city of Lincoln."
The 22nd annual Lincoln 10k Road Race attracts over 5,500 runners each year.
A highlight in the British racing calendar, competitors come from across the UK (and further afield) to take part in this prestigious event.
Alongside the national and international runners, are those representing club and county – not to mention the fantastic ‘fun runners’ who raise tens of thousands of pounds for their chosen charity.
A wheelchair race, attracting some of the best athletes around, starts just before the main race at 10.55am. A mass warm up will take place 20 minutes before the race is due to start.
The Lincoln 10k Road Race starts at the Lincoln Castle Academy (formerly Yarborough School) on Riseholme Road, and continues on a flat route through the streets of Lincoln. The route passes the iconic Lincoln Cathedral, and ends in Castle Square, just in front of Lincoln Castle.
There is a great atmosphere during the race, for runners and spectators alike.
For spectators, there are some great viewing points along the course of the race. It will be busy around Riseholme Road, Lincoln Cathedral and Castle Square, but apart from that, you should get a good vantage point quite easily.
