Race overview

We are delighted to bring the North Lincolnshire half marathon back to the running calendar on Sunday 5th March 2023. This race has proved to be extremely popular over the years with many runners achieving a personal or age group best performance. This flat, fast and friendly race will have a fabulous fish with a lap inside the local running track. It is ideally timed for anyone undertaking a Spring marathon or who wants a good fast early season time.

It will also feature a similarly flat, fast and friendly 10k race, using the same course as the previously held Valentines 10k.

The friendly nature of the event makes both distances suitable for anyone looking to run the distance for the first time.

Quibell Park is a perfect venue for your family and friends to watch you start and finish the race. The finish is excellent as runners will finish by running clockwise around the athletics track for around 250m. The concourse around the track is big enough for literally hundreds of family members to cheer you in as you speed around the track. With the rousing sound of our commentator on the PA system, this will be a really rousing finish to a fast, flat and friendly Valentine 10k race.

It is around a 10 minute walk to the start line.
