Saturday 14th October 2017
10km starts at 1030
Half Marathon starts at 1100
The race is now FULL!
Thank you for entering the 6th Gruesome Twosome event. With less than 2 weeks to go, we are delighted to announce that the race is full. Over 800 runners have put their best foot forward to have a super day out on the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds.
Car Share We ask that you consider car sharing. This will make your arrival a seamless one and reduce the impact on the environment. If you live on the north of the Humber, why not consider meeting up at the Humber Bridge car park and travel together from there.
Car Parking This is in a large field just off the A46 on the right hand side as you drop into Swallow Village. There will be signs and a marshal showing you where to park. Please do not park in the village. Post code LN7 6DE will take you there.
Village Pub Unfortunately the pub recently closed down and will be so for the foreseeable future. Our plans for the race are unaffected, as we will be based entirely in the village park. There are plenty of other pubs in the immediate area in Rothwell, Great Limber, Caistor and the outskirts of Grimsby if you are looking to stay over for a beer/meal.
Number Collection This will be in the play park in Swallow, which for those of you who have ran before is our traditional finish area. Numbers will be available from 9am on race day, only need for one of the runners to collect. The park is easy to find, you walk out of the same gate you have driven through to park up and turn right for about 2 minutes, easy!
Distance to the start lines
The races start in different places and are both around 0.75 miles from where you collect your numbers. These will be well sign posted, but please allow plenty of time for the run/jog/walk down there.
Race Crew We still need a few more volunteers to assist on the day. If you know anyone who wants to be part of the event please e mail Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk . Race crew beanie hat for all!
Will update you in the days before the race.
