Sleaford Half-Marathon

:Looking for a swift half to get into the marathon mode, anyone tel how underlating this is?

How does it compare to The Turkey Trot, Wroksop, Hose, or Robin Hood halfs? 



  • Hilly maybe a strong word but it is quite undulating and testing. theres a 2 mile off road section too. However ive done it 3 or 4 times now and its a fab well organised race.


  • im up for this one will be my first time running itimage
  • Youll love it Angie, undulating and only one proper'ish hill which comes near the end. see ya there.


  • i can cope with undulating

    see you there image

  • The 2 mile mile off road section is rather interesting if it's been raining. Very well organised race as well.image
  • A good Half to start the year off image, done it twice in the last 3 years and really enjoyed it, ( can be cold )

    Seems to set me up nicely for the coming year, see you all there.

  • Hopefully the snow will go about 2 weeks time and it may be colder still. But thats Ok that Lincolnshire for you.This race is so easy until the fields of mud otherwise its pure speed?

  • scooterhax

    At First we start on the field then on to the road through the Villange then 2 miles of mud(DRY)then all the way on the road towards homeimage

    I hope this will help youimage

  • I did it last year and the last hill about a mile out turned my legs to jelly. image

     Looking forward to it this year.
