Gruesome Post Race message

Message to all you Gruesome Runners!

You are Gruesome!

How are the legs after yesterday? Hope you are resting up.

Without doubt it was the best Gruesome Twosome since we started back in 2012….a few of you have done all of them! A combination of the relatively mild weather, fantastic views across the Lincolnshire Wolds and some really enthusiastic race crew volunteers really made the day. Of course not forgetting your fantastic efforts in becomig a proper Gruesome runner!

We eventually stopped at 7pm last night and went for a curry and a beer with our mums who were both out helping you all at the race. Just sufficient alcohol drank to get our mums laughing…that’s all we will say! It didn’t help shift the massive amount of kit, nor did today’s rain, that needs sorting out but we had fun!

Thanks to the amazing efforts of the volunteer photographers there are loads of free pics for you to peruse. Grab a brew and find yourself in full flow! >>>PICS

We have spent the day submitting plans to 2 local authorities and to UK Athletics for the 2020 race which will take place on Saturday 10th October. Put it in your diary/iphone! We will announce asap when entries will open. Full details can be found on the race web site 

We hope that the rest of this year will find you fit and well. We just have a couple of fun events to organise in Cleethorpes. A new Haunted Halloween Hobble on 2nd November and our annual night and day Santa Stride on 15th December.
Full details of all our plans can be found on Upcoming race page

All that remains is for us both to thank you for supporting our race and hope to see you soon.

Many thanks
