Run in pairs over the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds with the famous Beanie hat, sausage/cheese roll and cuppa waiting for you in the village park.

This is so much fun with many runners coming back every year to sample the super atmosphere of the Wolds and running with a friend.

Gruesome Twosome 10k & Half Marathon routes

Both routes take in some of Lincolnshire’s finest scenic countryside. They are very much undulating multi-terrain events taking in grassland, quiet tarmac roads, public footpaths, trails and meadows.

The routes has been agreed with kind permission from Sutton estates, Yarborough estates and Beelsby farming company, who have kindly allowed us to use their land for race day.

Water Stations

Half marathon at 3.75, 6.8 miles and 9.9 miles

10k at 4.5km

Half marathon
This course starts in exactly the same place as it did in 2015. It is around half a mile walk from race HQ and starts in a large filed. Turn right out of the pub car park and follow the road until it becomes a footpath. After a short distance you will see signs taking you into a field. Follow these down until you arrive at the start flag.

Spectators
For the half marathon spectators must walk down to the field where the race starts. Please do not go beyond the first marshal point, as you may get trampled by the runners! Also, you will get a great view and photo opportunity at marshal 1 point.

Rothwell village is a great place to see the runners emerge from the back of the pub, around the 3.5 mile point.

Cuxwold farmyard, which is around 5.75 miles provides a good backdrop to see the runners emerging off the hill top. Please be mindful that farm machinery operates in this area.

There are other points on the course where you can see the runners, but please be careful where you park so as not to block the runners path.

The finish in the park at Swallow is excellent.
