Covide-19 update 10 August 2020

For the time being we have paused entries into the race whilst we fully assess the impact Covid-19 will have. We will be in touch with all runners asap to update them with progress. 

May 4, 2020

Rescheduled to Sunday 18th October 2020

Firstly, thank you for entering our race and we hope that you and your nearest/dearest are well in these uncertain times. It is great to see that the country is gelling together to ensure we all pull through the other side.

At Tape2Tape we are a very small business, who like many others are doing all we can to keep operating through these turbulent times, as we rely on the work we absolutely love to survive. We will continue to support our charities, community groups and businesses who we have worked with for several years as best we can, as they will also be in need of support.

We have been constantly assessing the situation with regards to all the events we have scheduled for 2020. Based on information received from Public Health England via our Event Safety Advisory Group, who oversee all events in the locality, we have made the decision that the race will not take place as originally planned on Sunday 19th July. Whilst this will be disappointing to some of you, we know that this decision will receive your full support.

We have been working hard to ensure that we can re-schedule the race as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. This has been like a big jigsaw puzzle to tie in venue availability, service providers such as traffic management, medical, timing, etc. We have managed to do so in quick time and with the full support of our headline sponsor, Ørsted, the race is now scheduled to take place on Sunday 18th October 2020.

We know that despite our best efforts, this date will not suit everyone for a variety of reasons. Due to the unprecedented reasons for postponement we have relaxed our terms and conditions and are able to offer you other options which we feel sure will be acceptable.

To assist us with our processes, the default will be that your entry will automatically be carried over to the 18th October. If you are happy with this, you do not need to do anything more.

If this option is not convenient please read on and take action appropriately.


If you wish to transfer your place to another runner you can now do so free of charge until 9am on Monday 21st September. Any financial arrangements are solely between you and the new runner with whom you transfer to. Please follow these >>> Transfer Instructions


If you wish to directly move your entry to the 2021 race (date to be fixed) free of charge, you can do so by immediately emailing Results Base on You must state your full name, email address, order ID and that you wish to transfer to 2021. The subject line must say ‘Grimsby 10k entry deferral to 2021’. The strict deadline to do this will be 4th June 2020.


If you wish to transfer over to ABP Humber Coastal 10k on Sunday 20th September please immediately e mail Results Base on You must state your full name, e mail, order ID and that you wish to transfer to the ABP Humber 10k. The subject line must say ‘Grimsby 10k entry transfer to ABP Humber 10k’. The strict deadline to do this will be 4th June 2020.

Thank you for your kind messages and continued support, take care and we will see you soon.

Best regards

Nicola, Neil and the Tape2Tape Team

Great Grimsby interesting Facts

According to legend, Great Grimsby was founded in the ninth century by a Danish Viking. The name Grimsby is thought to have originated from the Grim’s by, or ‘Grim’s Village’, based on Grim – the Danish Viking thought to be the founder of the town.

Grimsby is today a thriving modern town offering excellent facilities for education, shopping, leisure and work.  Grimsby is undergoing a radical transformation as part of a 25-year vision for the town, including the recently completed £6million town centre regeneration project, key developments on the docks, and exciting leisure developments in the town centre and beyond.

Once the world’s largest fishing port, the town is now benefitting from the rise of the offshore renewable energy industry and is a European centre for food processing.

North East Lincolnshire in a nutshell

North East Lincolnshire – home to the UK’s largest port and the seafood capital of the country.  North East Lincolnshire covers 192 square kilometres and includes the port towns of Great Grimsby and Immingham, the resort town of Cleethorpes and the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The population is about 157,300 and there are about 70,000 households.

Chart-topper Ella Henderson, motorbike ace Guy Martin, Strictly Come Dancing’s Kevin and Joanne Clifton, Miranda star Patricia Hodge, elephant man John Hurt and Australia’s most-despised soap character, Mrs Nell Mangel, played by actress Vivean Gray, are all from the borough.

Legendary music producer and former fish factory worker Rod Temperton is from Cleethorpes. He wrote and produced many of Michael Jackson’s biggest hits including Rock With You, Off the Wall and Thriller.

Elton John’s 1974 track ‘Grimsby’ was written by Bernie Taupin about his time in the town as a teenager. One line reads: “Oh England you’re fair, but there’s none to compare with my Grimsby. Through nights of mad youth, I have loved every sluice in your harbour.”

North East Lincolnshire’s key business sectors are:  ports and logistics, food processing, energy and renewables, chemical and process, housing and development and the visitor economy.

Great Grimsby top facts

Grimsby Dock Tower was designed as hydraulic tower by James William Wild and he modelled it on the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena, Italy. It stands 61m (200ft) high and was completed on 27 March 1852.

A miniature version of the Port of Grimsby can be found at Legoland Windsor – it features the Dock Tower, Corporation Bridge and other local landmarks.

Grimsby and Immingham handle more cargo than any other port complex in the UK

Race course

You can view the race route >>>RACE ROUTE


The safety of all participants is our number one priority. You will see that we have gone to great lengths  to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable race day experience.

Road closures


We are applying to North East Lincolnshire Council for a full road closure order for the race.

We will work with local communities to minimise impact, communicate full details of the road closures and encourage their involvement in this great event.

Medical provision

UK Athletics specify the amount of medical coverage that is needed at any road race that they licence. With our ethos of safety being our number one priority, we always far exceed the minimum requirements. We will have a fully staffed first aid post at the finish as well as one out on the course.


Marshals will be in place at every road junction, for the safety of all runners as well as other road users. Please ensure that you obey the instructions of marshals at all times. There will be more than 100 volunteer marshals on the course, so please show your appreciation as you run past them.

Risk assessment

A risk assessment complying with UK Athletics requirements will be regularly updated as planning for the race progresses.

Lead car/cyclists

A lead car and cyclists will be on the course ahead of the lead runners warning other road users that runners are on their way

Road closures

Road Closure & Traffic Management Information during the 2020 Ørsted Great Grimsby 10k and Fun Run.

As race organisers our number one priority is safety. We have a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order in place for the race. This is legally binding and prevents traffic from entering the race route and some surrounding streets before and during the race.

We acknowledge that this may cause some disruption to some people, but respectfully ask you to plan ahead, making minor adjustments to your normal routine. You will see lots of people in hi viz jackets at all road junctions. These are volunteers who are giving up their time to make the event safe and enjoyable for all. We ask that you are kind and respectful of these super volunteers.

With the exception of an area in Great Grimsby Town Centre, roads will start to be closed down from 8.30 am. We expect the full network to be back to normal by 12.45

You will see lots of these signs around Grimsby, indicating times that roads will be closed. This is the absolute worst case scenario and roads will be opened up on a rolling basis as soon as it is safe to do so. Rest assured, we will open sections of road up asap.

We work closely with East Midlands Ambulance Service and Diana Princess of Wales Hospital as part of teh extensive planning process for teh race.

Access to DPOW hospital is maintained at all times during the race for emergency ambulances who can use Scartho Road at all times with sirens and blue lights on. Non-emergency access to the hospital is via Second Avenue, with a well signed route in place.

The other emergency services have also been consulted and have plans in place to ensure their business continues as normal.

road closed

We will be going to significant lengths to advertise the road closures

  • Thousands of letters delivered to residents and businesses on the route(apologies to those residents who have received 2 letters, which was down to a mechanical issue with the postal machine)
  • Local media awareness
  • Social media posts
  • Advanced signage on the route a week before race day
  • Signed diversionary routes

Electronic map can be found HERE



Grimsby Town Centre

The area bounded by Doughty Road, Town Hall Square, East Street, Victoria Street, Town Hall Street, Pasture Street, Osborne Street and New Street will be closed from 7.30am and re-open around 11am. This is to allow the start line to be set up as well as provide a safe area for the expected 5,000 people to congregate prior to the race.


Weelsby Road and surrounding Streets

We will do our utmost to keep one end of Weelsby Road open for as long as possible. There may however be a period of about 20 minutes when both ends are closed to traffic. This will be relaxed as soon as it is safe to open up.

We expect that the Nuns Corner end will be closed from 8.30am. It will re-open at about 10.40am. The Peaks Parkway junction will be kept open for traffic to travel towards Cleethorpes until just before the first runner enters the Parkway. It will not be possible for vehicles to enter Peaks Parkway from 8.30am.

Diana Princess of Wales Hospital

We are working closely with the hospital and East Midlands Ambulance Service to ensure it is business as normal. Access to the hospital for members of the public and staff is via Second Avenue. Ambulances who are travelling to/from the hospital in an emergency will have access to the race route at all times.

Louth Road

Anyone wishing to exit Louth Road during the race are advised to park their vehicle in Southfield Avenue prior to 8.30am. This will allow you to drive onto Waltham Road and out of town.

Park Drive.

This will be closed at both junctions with Welholme Road from 8.30am and re-open around 12.30. It will however be possible to use Park Drive and exit into Weelsby Road.  Anyone who lives between number 1 and 10 Park Drive are advised to leave their vehicle beyond number 11 if you need to leave during the times of the road closures.

Scartho Top

Access in and out of Scartho Top during the race will be via the hospital grounds and Second Avenue.




Cash prizes for first, second and third placed male and female:  first £250, second £150 and third: £100.

Corporate Challenge: mixed teams, first six runners in each team to count. Trophy for first, second and third teams.

Running Club challenge:  first four male and first four female runners to count.

Under 20’S Trophy for first male and female in this age category.

Veterans prizes: trophy for first male and female runner in the following age categories: male 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70 and female 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70,75,80

Overall winners: as per UKA rules, the times used for calculating results will be GUN times and so all potential winners should be at the front of the wave. It is expected that the overall winners will come from Wave 1.


Category winners: as per UKA rules, the times used for calculating results will be GUN times and so all potential winners should be at the front of the wave. Wave 1 and Wave 2 will have separate gun stars so slower/older categories will not be penalised for starting in Wave 2 but they should start at the front of that wave. Runners who change wave will run the risk of having an incorrect time as early starts (ie Wave 2 jumping to Wave 1) will be ignored and late starts (Wave 1 jumping to Wave 2) will not be compensated for the time difference.

Team and corporate prizes will be taken from those runners whom have correctly assigned themselves to the correct team prior to 5pm on Friday 17th July 2020. No adjustments will be made to these results after this time.


Team results will be based on net/chip times and not on gun times.


Mad Mile results will be based on the actual time between the two timing points and will not be affected by wave (it is expected that the fastest time will come from Wave 1 for obvious reasons!).


The time shown on your SMS message (if you selected that option) will be your actual running time (net/chip time) and results online will be shown in net/chip time order along with the time taken to cover the Mad Mile. As the Mad Mile is not at an exact K point within the 10K the intermediate splits will not be shown (you will get a split time to the start of the Mad Mile in your results details but this will not be used as the basis of any pace or speed calculation).


  • When will I receive my number ?

    About a week prior to the race.

  • Can I wear earphones in the race?

    The organisers do not advocate the use of personal headphones during the race. We are bound by the rules of England athletics who state that only bone conducting earphones may be used in a race where the roads are not closed to traffic. If you do choose to run with headphones on you do so entirely at your own risk as it will significantly reduce your ability to listen to safety instructions

  • Can I have a refund?

    Due to the current situation we have been extremely flexible with the terms and conditions which you agreed to prior to paying for your place. The only proviso is that we are not able to offer up any refunds.   As soon as you enter the race we incur significant costs which we are unable to recover. One of these is vat, for which the bill has already been paid to HMRC. We are unable to recover this and many other costs. Indeed if we were to refund all the places the business we set up from nothing and love would cease to exist overnight. Nobody wants this to happen as we will get through this and be able to organise races for years to come.   The advice I offer you is to do nothing and your place will automatically move over to the new date. You will then have the time to find a replacement to take your place and arrange the entry fee transfer with the new runner.   If you want to buy yourself even more time to find a replacement my advice is to transfer to next year, then transfer your place to another runner.   Thus far our kind offer, flexibility and range of options has been accepted by everyone who has entered our races.   Sorry we are unable to offer you a refund, however given the explanation, the flexibility we have offered up and plenty of time to find a replacement runner we feel this is fair, as it will mean you should be able to recoup your money and allow us to continue delivering quality events beyond the situation we find ourselves in.   Take care and hope you are managing to get out for a run.  

  • Can I push a pushchair in the race?

    Sorry no it is too dangerous. It is part of our licensing conditions that we assess the risk in order that we have adequate public liability insurance cover.    

  • Can I run with a dog?

Thank you for submitting your details.

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

Time Limit

There will be a strictly imposed 2 hour time limit for the race.

This is a running event so we reasonably expect everyone to finish within 2 hours. This is necessary to minimise disruption to the general public due to the roads being closed.

Anyone who fails to reach the half way point 1 hours after the last wave 2 runner has gone over the start line will not be allowed to continue in the race and will be offered a lift in the sweep vehicle.


Some of the ways that we ensure that we maintain a positive environmental impact at our event


  • Encouraging car sharing
  • Ensuring all rubbish is removed from the route
  • Using drinks containers that can be re-cycled
  • Any discarded clothing left at the start line by runners in collected and then donated to a local charity
  • Key information is emailed to participants instead of being posted.
  • We do not give away goody bags.
  • Left over tee shirts and medals are given to charity


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 or telephone 01472 824894. We will be happy to meet with you on the course and discuss any areas of concern you may have.

10KM Course

The 10km course itself is flat, on wide tarmac roads(with the exception of the last 100m which is on grass), which should make it suitable for athletes in wheelchairs.

You are however encouraged, irrespective of your ability, to contact 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.


There are plenty of parking spaces close to the start/finish area.


Grimsby Town Hall has a disabled access situated on the left hand side and at the rear of the building the same access which is used for the Councils Archives Department, and this is signed on the entrance.  Access is gained via an intercom just inside the entrance hall which is connected to the Town Hall reception desk, who can remotely open the door, this gives direct access to the ground floor or the lift to the first floor.  The first floor disabled toilets are situated directly down the corridor to the left as you exit the lift.  Ground floor access is via a corridor to the left hand side as you come through the disabled entrance signposted “Reception” a stair lift will be available so that the ground floor disabled toilets can be accessed which are situated to the right of the main staircase.

When exiting the building there is a push button to automatically open the door.


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 or telephone 01472 824894.

Security Advice

In view of the current increased security threat facing everyone in the UK, we have been provided sound advice by the police on how we can all stay safe. There is no need for anyone to be alarmed, we want everyone to enjoy the race as normal, but ask that you remain alert and vigilant.

Please report any unattended baggage or suspicious activity to an event marshal.

If using the baggage buses, you must show your runner number prior to handing the bag to our volunteers.

Don’t leave bags unattended or anywhere they could cause a security scare. And never agree to look after anyone else’s bags, no matter how plausible their story.
In an emergency, if you think there is an immediate risk, always call 999 and look around you for help from race marshals.

Remember, the chance of being caught in a terrorism incident is small. But if it happens – Run, Hide, Tell.
