The Mablethorpe Marathon is a complete event incorporating a 26.2 mile full marathon and a 13.1 mile half marathon. Backed by local authorities, residents and businesses the route covers beautiful countryside and coastline. The Mablethorpe Marathon also hosts the Lincolnshire County Championship Marathon with Gold, Silver and Bronze badges available for the three fastest eligible male and female runners who enter.
The routes are perfect for first timers or those wanting to achieve a personal best and will be policed and marshalled throughout with drinks stations at least every 3 miles.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you, for the lovely time I had in your half-marathon. Furthermore, to be presented with such a lovely first O/60s shield was the icing on the cake! THANK YOU! I managed to knock 4 1/2 mins off this year's fastest half-marathon.

I just wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic event today. I ran the half marathon and found it to be one of the best-organised and friendliest races I have entered. Great facilities, wonderful marshals, brilliant t-shirts, lovely atmosphere, stunning weather and a PB for me - many many thanks!! I hope to come back to bring the family to the beach if not to run the race again - I'll need to recover before I make that decision!

Just wanted to congratulate your team for a fantastic race yesterday, everyone was efficient, friendly and enthusiastic, to be honest probably the best event I have done (and I've done a few!)
Thanks again, see you next year.

Thank you for a great day yesterday. It was my first marathon and really glad I chose Mablethorpe. The marshals were fantastic as was the atmosphere and support on route. A really well organised and enjoyable event. Many thanks

Thanks so much. The atmosphere was great, and your marshalls were really lovely and inspiring... Much like London 2012 games makers!
