This will be the ninth year of this midsummer evening 10km road race organised by Grantham Running Club in the quiet lanes around Long Bennington. It promises to be an even better event than last year with a 900 limit and chip timing.The accurately measured course whilst not pancake flat has delivered many 'seasons best' and a few elusive pb's. This is also an ideal course to attempt your first 10k race.

Route information
It is a fairly flat course with 33m of ascent and 33m of descent, a course profile is on our website. There is one drinks station for water at 6km. There is also a first aid station here as well as one at the finish. If you witness a fellow runner injured, or in difficulty, please make sure a marshal has been informed before you continue your run.
The start is situated a few hundred metres from Race HQ and will be clearly signed. There are no toilets at the start area. The start area will remain live to traffic until the road closure is put in place at 7:20pm. Runners who get to the start prior to this time are requested not to block the road and to assemble in the car park adjacent. To help ensure a smooth start we will indicate time boxes at the roadside.
Once the race has started runners will have the use of both carriageways for approximately 200 metres, after which you will be guided onto the nearside carriageway only. Runners are reminded to run on the left hand side throughout the race. This is for your own safety and is the shortest route round the course.
The finish line is just before the gateway as you re-enter Race HQ. There will be a gantry making it clearly visible. When you finish, please move off the carriageway onto the playing fields, along the funnel and collect your bottle of beer, memento and refreshments. NOTE: The wearing of headphones is strictly prohibited and any runners found wearing them will be disqualified.
