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 generates a huge cash boost for scores of local charities, gets underway at 11am.
Organisers, Run For All, 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 in Riseholme Road and finishes near Lincoln Cathedral. The route takes the field along Longdales Road, Nettleham Road, Church Lane, Newport, B1273, Burton Road and Queen Elizabeth Road. They are among a number of roads that will be closed for the race.

Lynne Preston, Run For All Event Manager, said: “The City of Lincoln 10K is one of the region’s most popular charity road runs and we want to make it an enjoyable day for all involved.
“As with any event of this size, some road closures will be necessary to ensure the safety of the participants and spectators. Unfortunately a certain amount of disruption is inevitable and we would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. All closures will be lifted as soon as possible.”
Participants in the 10K can choose to run for fun or to raise funds for any cause of their choice.
They are particularly encouraged to support one of the event’s official partner charities: LIVES, Macmillan Cancer Support, St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, Framework, Cerebral Palsy Sport, brainstrust, the Mayor of Lincoln’s Charity and the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
Limited places remain in the City of Lincoln 10K and would-be runners are advised to move quickly or risk being left disappointed.
