“Caythorpe – the friendly place for a run in the countryside”.
We are truly hoping that some sense of ‘normality’ will return to life with the Covid vaccination, so we are planning on our October race to be a ‘mass start’ !
The Caythorpe Dash – 10K & 5K Event will take place Sunday 24 Oct 21 at 1000.
The Caythorpe Dash 10K is a part-marshaled, part signed multi-terrain run through the picturesque Lincolnshire countryside, which takes in tracks, bridle paths, footpaths and minor roads on the Lincolnshire Ridge.
