Thousands sign up for Lincoln 10K

Running record: More people have signed up to the Lincoln 10K than ever before.

Over five thousand people have signed up to run Lincoln’s annual Active Nation 10K race — a new record.

So far 5,032 people will take part in the race on April 3, starting on Yarborough Road.

Of these, 4,522 people are for the main race and wheelchair race, 60 in the Get Mummy Fit Buggy Push, 300 children for the Running Imp primary school and 150 secondary pupils.

The majority of the applications came through the brand new online sign up form at

Councillor Alister Williams is Portfolio Holder for Health and Recreation at the City of Lincoln Council, which organises the event. 

He said: “I was one of the first people to apply to take part in the Lincoln 10K, and this year we’ve had more early entries than ever.

“However, there are still places, and I’d encourage anyone who fancies taking part to get online or request an application form.

“We’ve added extra events to run alongside the main 10K race, with something for everyone, including races specifically for parents and for children.

“It promises to be a great day!”

There is still time to sign up and get a race pack, as the application process closes on March 25. Go online to sign up or visit City Hall for a form.
