Event Overview

Sunday 30th June 2013 sees the first St Barnabas Grimsthorpe Challenge hit the roads of Lincolnshire, Rutland and Nothamptonshire.  Run in aid of St Barnabas Hospice, it is not compulsory to raise sponsorship, you can just donate when you enter online or on the day.

Start and finish in front of the impressive 16th century Grimsthorpe Castle in south Lincolnshire, with the first 5 miles of all routes on a traffic-free tarmac trail through the historic grounds and woodlands of the Grimsthorpe Estate.

After that the on-road routes are not much busier as you turn to the north of the Estate onto the quiet lanes of South Lincolnshire before turning south to Head for the more challenging Rutland and Northants roads.

There are three routes to choose from, 115 miles, 76 miles and 55 miles, with the longest route also being hillier.

There are three feeds on the longest route, two on the medium route and one on the shortest. Post event food will be provided as part of the entry fee. Breakfast, tea and coffee prior to the ride can be purchased on the day.
