Lincolnshire Wolds Head Torchers


We hope if all is ok with the country that we will resume head torch runs in October 2021.

Free and great fun!

We have been organising these FREE (voluntary charity donation runs with head torches strapped to our heads since the winter of 2011! Just a handful of us ran in wind, rain, snow and moonlight! We had great fun so decided to invite others along to join in the fun!

Now runners from all over the area come together and enjoy some great running venues across the Lincolnshire Wolds, and occasionally just off piste! At the end of the runs we usually meet in the local pub that normally put on a special dish for us all, this is optional but a great social afterwards!

Our aim is to ensure that these runs are safe and enjoyable for all abilities. This season we’ll be doing 2 runs per month, of 1 distance only, which will be no more than 6 miles. We will go out as a single group so if you want a speed session this is NOT the right run for you. These are steady social runs for all abilities where you can have a bit of fun and a natter along the way!

We will have regular regroups at each mile {approx.} We’d like all runners to support each other by encouraging and running alongside the runners who have a different ability.

We ask that ALL runners who attend:

  • Listen to the safety brief before the run
  • Can comfortably RUN the specified distance and not walk
  • Bring a good head torch and bright clothing
  • Be willing to support each other
  • Make a minimum £1 donation (voluntary but preferred) to the charity we are supporting
  • Must be aware that you are attending at your own risk – Please note that we do have run leaders/ back markers and first aid support at all the runs

All runs will start at 6.30pm unless otherwise stated

The torch runs are free of charge, organised by volunteers who recce the run and organise the food options. We encourage you to bring some loose change with you and pop it into the charity jar. Minimum donation of £2 is preferred.

We have raised around £4,000 in the last 3 years since by introducing the charity element, we’ve donated to some great local charities including, Lincolnshire Air Ambulance, Operation Christmas Child, Riding for the disabled and Not Home Alone.

This years cause:

Our current charitable cause is for a local young lady called Leanne Stephen who was born with Cerebral Palsy. Leanne is a wheelchair athlete who for 10 years was part of the Paralympic Table Tennis Team. Leanne is now a qualified fitness Instructor and has a passion for promoting disability in a positive way. Leanne loves to participate at our events and has recently lost 2 stone. She is in desperate need of a new wheelchair as the current one is 10 yrs old. She needs around £5,000 in total for a new one and is currently trying really hard to raise the money.  If you can help Leanne in any other way please contact Or maybe you wish to make a donation yourself – see link below. Thank you for your support.
