Road Closure Advice

Thousands of runners of all abilities will hit the streets of Lincoln on Sunday 2nd April for the 21st running of the City of Lincoln 10K.

The race, which raises many tens of thousands of pounds for charity, gets underway at 11am and we are now informing runners, spectators, residents and visitors that a number of the city’s roads will be closed or have access restricted during the event to ensure the safety of all those taking part.

The event starts on Riseholme Road and finishes near Lincoln Cathedral. The route takes the field along Longdales Road, Nettleham Road, Church Lane, Newport, the B1273, Burton Road and Queen Elizabeth Road. 

They are among a number of roads that will be closed for the race.

My Journey...
Nigel and Amy Johnson

Nigel Johnson and his sixteen-year-old daughter Amy from Sleaford, took part in their first ever 10k run to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Nigel’s mum, Julie, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1994 and died six years later. The family will never forget the charity’s help

Nigel said: “It was mum’s Macmillan Nurse, Judy, who was able to help us make sense of everything. Judy was a friend when we needed it most.”
