Local Races and Runs
Historically Witham Runners have been heavily involved in the Basssingham Bash, and whilst this race is now organised by others, Witham Runners continues to support local runs in the community.
Members of the club regularly run or volunteer with some of the Local Parkruns, Lincoln, Newark and Doddington Hall are all supported and you can often see us on a Saturday Morning.
As well as the Bassingham Bash, we often represent our Club at the Lincoln 10k and Half Marathon, Newark Half Marathon and many other Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire events.
Our club slot for the London Marathon is awarded by Ballot to a full member and our members can be found most weeks competing in events from 5k to Ultra Marathons, locally and abroad.
A list of upcoming races can be found on the Run Britain website - www.runbritain.com/races

As a member of Witham Runners, you will be registered with UK Athletics and most races give a modest discount when entering races.
