It is almost time to lace up those running shoes – because the Spires and Steeples Challenge is getting closer.

The popular event is either a 26 or 13-mile run or walk from Lincoln or Metheringham to Sleaford, following the Spires and Steeples Arts and Heritage Trail through the villages of North Kesteven in aid of WheelPower.

This year’s challenge will take place on Sunday (October 18) and the deadline for online and telephone pre-entry is Wednesday. Postal entry deadline has passed.

All participants will receive a medal specially designed for this year’s challenge, as well as being awarded a certificate and goody bag after crossing the finish line.

Entries cost £18 for the 26-mile challenge and £15 for the 13-mile challenge.

You can enter online at or call 01522 694353.

You can also enter on the day by turning up at either The Lawn in Lincoln or Princes Street car park in Metheringham. An additional £3 will be charged for on-the-day entries.
