Runners set their sights on seventh Cleethorpes 10k

The ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon and 10k is returning to Cleethorpes for its seventh year on 17th September this year and is set to attract thousands of runners from across the Humber and beyond on the hunt for personal best times on the flat course.

ABP Humber is once again sponsoring both races, and whilst runners are welcome to raise funds for any charity, the chosen charity for the race is the Cleethorpes RNLI.

ABP Humber Regional Director Simon Bird said: “This is now the seventh year that ABP have sponsored the Humber Coastal Half Marathon which has not only become a significant fixture in the annual running calendar but has also helped to be a major boost to tourism for Cleethorpes and Grimsby. I am hugely proud of ABP’s association with this race, which this year we hope will be the biggest yet.”

The race is supported by around 250 volunteers who guide and cheer runners across the course to give it their best, hand out refreshments, and take photographs of the runners as they undertake their challenge that are then made available free.

Tape2Tape Director Nicola said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with ABP Humber once again to bring this fabulous event to Cleethorpes. The popular, traditional half marathon will also see the addition of a much awaited 10k course that is flat and fast! We are pleased to be working alongside many local charities and community groups who all love getting involved with this wonderful scenic event. We cannot thank ABP enough for their continued support.”
