It’s 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 October 18.

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... and it’s not too late to take part.

You can enter online at www.runnersworld.co.uk/spiresandsteeples2015 or call 01522 694353.

The deadline for postal entries is Monday, with the cut-off point for phone entries being next Wednesday.

However, 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.
