St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is looking for runners to fill their charity spaces in the Lincoln 10k.

The local hospice is one of the official partner charities of this years Lincoln 10k which is set to take place on Sunday 22nd March.

As part of that partnership St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice has 15 exclusive places reserved for runners who are asked to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.

Veronica Brien, Head of Fundraising and Marketing for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to be on board with this years City of Lincoln 10k and we are proud to have been chosen as one of the official charities. The 10k run offers us the opportunity to raise the vital funds we need to continue providing end of life care across Lincolnshire.

“We are looking for runners of all abilities to represent us in this years Lincoln 10k and pledge their support for the people of Lincolnshire. It is only with the generous support of our local community that we are able to care for more than 8,000 people a year.”

To help participants prepare for the 10k road race the charity has also partnered with local personal trainer, Shane Clarke. He has devised a basic personal fitness programme which is being shared weekly on St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice Facebook page.

Veronica said: “Runners who take up our exclusive charity spaces will receive a St Barnabas running vest and support with their fundraising efforts. Plus we will be waiting for them to cross the finish line in the charity village.

“The Lincoln 10k can be many things to many different people. It can be the chance to get fit, lose weight or set a personal best time. Whatever your reasons for running we urge our local community to run for us and run for end of life care.”
