The 2020 Summer Solstice 10K Road Race has been cancelled. Emails were sent out to entrants on the 23rd, 24th & 25th April, detailing this and advising you of your options. If you have not received an email yet please check your junk folder before emailing email@example.com. Please in the subject put "Cancellation email not received" this makes it easier for us to process the approx 500 emails currently coming in. We hope to see you all in 2021. Above all stay safe.
Regards Race Director Ben Mason
This will be the eleventh year of this midsummer evening 10km road race organised by Grantham Running Club in the quiet lanes around Long Bennington. It promises to be an even better event than last year with a 900 limit and chip timing.
The accurately measured course whilst not pancake flat has delivered many 'seasons best' and a few elusive pb's. This is also an ideal course to attempt your first 10k race.
The HQ will be at the Long Bennington Sports Pavilion offering toilets, changing rooms and off road car parking in an adjacent field.
As in 2019 when entering you will be able to chose between a complimentary bottle of Summer Solstice Ale or Summer Solstice Cider (as long as stocks last, we have to order these months in advance so order 500 of each), this is for all finishers (over 18). There will also be a bar, so you can stay a while and socialise with your fellow runners/club members. Soft drinks will also be available.
Complimentory FINNISHERS Bag
The Lincolnshire Runner will also be attending the event with its mobile retail stall with plenty of offers on running shoes and running clothing. If anyone wants anything specific bringing to the race just get in touch by phone (01522 523326) or email firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 noon on the day of the race. Any shops friends please come across and say hello.
