The popular Asda Foundation City of Lincoln 10K returns for 2018 on Sunday 1st July.


Runners are eagerly anticipating the Asda Foundation City of Lincoln 10K as the popular charity road runs returns for 2018 on Sunday 1st July.

The run had previously been organised to take place in March, however, due to extreme weather conditions it was forced to be postponed with the runners’ safety in mind. Now taking place on Sunday 1st July, the runners are set to enjoy much brighter and lighter conditions.

This year will be the 22nd running of the Asda Foundation City of Lincoln 10K which has grown in popularity year on year.


As one of the highlights in the region’s sporting calendar, the 10K boasts a sold-out field consisting of over 5000 runners. The 10K is also likely to attract large supportive crowds who will gather to watch the runners from various hotspots throughout the city.
