The streets of Lincoln prepare for the much-awaited 2018 Asda Foundation City of Lincoln 10K.
Over 5000 runners are getting ready to hit the streets of Lincoln on Sunday 1st July for one of the region’s biggest charity road races.
Expected to raise tens of thousands of pounds for local good causes, this year's sold-out City of Lincoln 10K gets underway at 9.30am.
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.

Tristan Batley-Kyle, Run For All head of events, said: “The City of Lincoln 10K is extremely popular and it is always inspiring to see so many runners turning out to support some excellent causes.
“We want the day to be safe and enjoyable for all involved and so, as with any event of this size, some road closures will be necessary. 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: Jane Tomlinson Appeal, St Barnabas Hospice, Macmillan Cancer Support, Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, Brainstrust, Lincoln and Kesteven Age UK, homelessness charity Leap and the chosen charities of the Mayor of Lincoln, Chris Burke - Lincoln Foodbank and Lincoln Community Larder.
