Almost 5,500 people are gearing up for the Lincoln 10k this weekend, with many doing a long-distance run for the first time.

Here are a few pieces of essential information ahead of Sunday's event.


Participants' race times will be available around 15 minutes after the last runner has finished - around two hours after the 11am start.

The results should therefore be online by around 1.15pm.

They will be available through This is Lincolnshire, as well as websites for the City of Lincoln Council and timing company HS Sports.

Times will be logged automatically through chips on people's race numbers, which can be kept by runners.

The start line

The run will start in Riseholme Road, around 500 metres south of the A15/A46 roundabout.

People who have specified they expect to complete the event in under 40 minutes will line up at the front.

Those expecting to complete it in other time brackets will line up in order behind them, with the quickest furthest forward.

Signs will show the correct places for each group to start.

There will be an information marquee at the nearby Yarborough Leisure Centure.

The route

From the start line, participants will work their down way towards Bishop Grosseteste University.

They will then complete a loop, running along Longdales Road, Nettleham Road and up Newport.

Here, they will make a left turn along Yarborough Crescent and then travel up Burton Road to the 5km mark.

A kilometre along Queen Elizabeth Road will take them to the start line, where they will begin to retrace their steps until reaching the end of Nettleham Road.

The last kilometre will take runners past the cathedral, into Lincoln Castle and to the finish line.

Toilets and water station

There will be toilets close to the start line and at the castle.

Facilities will also be available near the Yarborough Crescent/Longdales Road/Riseholme Road roundabout.

A water station will offer runners drinks as they get to the top of Burton Road.

Weather forecast

It is predicted to be cloudy with some sunny spells.

Temperatures are predicted to reach around 8C by 1pm.

Wind speeds are forecast to be low, with a maximum of 9mph.

    Very Strange, you call your self Freedom of Speech yet when someone does just that you get angry. I think a change of name is called for.

    This race has often been extortionate and badly organised. But still, thousands do it...the vast majority of whom would be far better off just going for a 6 mile run starting and finishing at their front door.

    Just seen the entry form for this race. 5.500 have entered at £17 a time. The third place runner wins £50. Someone is on to a nice little earner - its not the runner though.
