Swallow Lincs.

Race overview

After 2 years of troublesome weather, the 8th Gruesome Twosome was ran in near perfect conditions. Runners in the 10k and half enjoyed beautiful views across the Lincolnshire Wolds. The amazing race crew volunteers were vocal and very supportive of each and every runner.

The finish in Swallow park created such a lovely atmosphere, where every runner grabbed a cuppa, sausage roll and the famous Beanie hat!

We will be back on 10th October 2020!

Thank you for submitting your details.

We will be in touch with you if more places become available.


The race is inclusive and we encourage entries from all runners, irrespective of their ability. We encourage anyone who has any concerns about the course and whether or not it is  suitable for their individual circumstances to contact Nicola by e mail Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894. We will be happy to meet with you on the course and discuss any areas of concern you may have.

Both courses

Both courses are run on undulating multi-terrain surfaces. It is our view that this would make it impossible for a wheel chair athlete to take part in the race. It has unfortunately not been possible to make reasonable adjustments to the route, as there are no alternatives.

You are  encouraged, irrespective of your ability, to contact Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894 to discuss your individual circumstances so we can jointly decide on the best start time or position in the field for you.



We are bound by Run Britain rulings which state the minimum age for the 10km race is 15 and 17 for the half marathon.


There are plenty of parking spaces close to the start/finish area. Please contact the organisers if you need to reserve a space.



Visual impairment

Any visually impaired athlete is encouraged to run with a guide, who has a hi-viz tabard on denoting their role. Entry into the race is free for a guide, please contact Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894.


Race information

If you wish to receive any race material in a format which meets your needs then please contact us.


Race Day assistance

If any athlete requires specific assistance on race day, we ask that you contact us as early as possible.


We actively encourage anyone to come forward and volunteer to assist at the race. We will work with you to provide the most appropriate role for your circumstances


As race organisers we are keen to improve how we make the event truly inclusive. If you have any queries or suggestions on how to improve our inclusivity then contact Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894.

Race Timing

How on earth does this work?

Quite simply it is a race in pairs, so there is absolutely no point in one of the runners finishing ahead of their partner. The time for the team will be taken from the last of the 2 runners over the line.

Generally runners will want to finish together as they cross the line with their hands raised…that way we can see your numbers.

If you do find yourself ahead of your partner we suggest you wait for them in the lay by which is about 50m before the finish line. This way you can encourage each other and finish together, in the true spirit of the Gruesome Twosome race. (clue is in the race title!)

We do not use chip timing to keep the costs at a reasonable level for you all.

Help us to help you by making sure your number is clearly visible in front of you as you cross the line.
