Route information
Set in the beautiful grounds of Grimsthorpe Castle, in the delightfully charming Lincolnshire countryside just 10mins off the A1 near Peterborough. This event makes for a perfect summer race, on the family friendly 5k or on the longer challenges of 10k, 10miles or 13.1 miles. The 4 routes take you past various delights within the private grounds including the castle, lake, tree lined tarmac avenues, ancient woodland along grassed paths and a Victorian railway culvert.
The train line no longer exists, but the 10 and 13.1 mile routes travel along this section and take you to a part of the world generally unseen by the public.
The race start/finish line will be in front of the castle along the driveway, offering a unique venue.
Due to the increased temperatures the past 2 years we have decided to have an earlier start time! Feel free to bring a picnic & enjoy the park after your race.

Great. I was unfortunately late but everyone was really accommodating..amazing support from everyone round the course. One Marshall run up a Hill with me to keep me motivated (it's clear I'm a newbie to running) so many other competitors encouraged me on my way round to. Amazing.
