My first time at Lincoln 10km 2022. Absolutely loved it! Special thanks to the two 55 Pacers who actually got me a PB of 23:29 so I was delighted, they were brilliant in their motivation and encouragement. Tracie C

I ran Lincoln 10k for the first time last weekend. The course was well laid out and the atmosphere was amazing. Daniel W

As always Run for All is a great event and Lincoln is a great place.Its a flat run allows runners to try and get PB's.The crowds were great all around the route.The marshalls were very supportive.The pacers did an excellant job and were encouraging all the way round.This support allowed me to achieve a personal best. James C

I rate Run For All events... I have run them all for a couple of years now, and they are always well organised events with a great goody bag. Lincoln is a stunning city. If you can get there the day before or even stay over on the Sunday, then there is plenty to see and do. Steve I

Really good event with very good local support. Good course for big beginners. Great to finish next to Lincoln Cathedral. Mark C
