19 October 2008 Lincoln to Sleaford
...a charity running and walking marathon in aid of Wheel Appeal!
On Sunday 19 October 2008, join in with the momentous Spires & Steeples Challenge Event! A running and walking marathon, in aid of the charity Wheel Appeal.
The marathon follows the wonderful and intriguing, newly created Spires & Steeples Arts and Heritage Trail through Lincolnshire.
Starting in Lincoln, you can walk or run the full 26 miles to Sleaford, or complete half the route which leads you to the village of Metheringham. A four mile all ability route that runs from Beech House, Waterside South in Lincoln to Washingborough and back is also available to choose.
The participants will raise money for the Wheel Appeal charity. Wheel Appeal aims to raise enough money to purchase 2,012 sports wheelchairs in time for the 2012 Paralympics.
The Spires & Steeples Arts and Heritage Trail includes beautiful art works designed and made by local people.
Spires & Steeples takes in the beauty of the Lincolnshire landscape from fen land to heaths, via picturesque woodlands and flowing streams as it winds its ways from village to village and church to church.
You can find out about local history along the way, visit quaint country pubs and walk through a variety of enchanting landscapes.
See and visit all of this whilst completing the Spires & Steeples Challenge Event on 19 October 2008.
