We're Back!!

The LB5K Farm Run makes a welcome return for 2022. Although we had originally pencilled in June 5th for the 2022 event, there’s likely to be a lot of Queen’s Jubilee celebrations that weekend, so we have decided that the best option will be to stick to our “regular” slot of the last Sunday in May. If you are able to join us, you’re going to be in for a treat as we’ve added some new sections to the course and will for the first time be using chip timing for both the 5k and 10k events


The LB5K is an off-road event that makes extensive use of grass paths and as such, it is unlikely to be suitable for most wheelchairs or pushchairs. If you would like to take part but have any concerns regarding the suitability of the course for your particular circumstances, please contact us before registering to discuss your requirements.

The Course

The LB5K course is an off-road circular route that takes in the grassy paths and farm tracks that weave their way throughout a working organic farm. The initial sections take you beside a stream, before climbing towards a short section of the former “Midland and Great Northern” railway and then a further climb towards the top of “Holywell Hill”, leaving the valley behind. Then on towards with the village of Careby to the South and a slow drop towards the route of the East Coast main line before heading back towards the farmyard. The 10K course is effectively 2 loops of the 5k course with some extra little interesting bits thrown in for good measure (you’ll be nicely warmed up after the first and really able to enjoy the second!).

Distance and Timings

The course is carefully measured using GPS, but the events are not certified distances.

We will be using a chip timing system for both 5k and 10k events

Results and Prizes

There will be prizes on offer for the first overall male and female. Additionally, prizes are available for the first male and female who are resident of the Bythams Community (including Little Bytham, Castle Bytham, Creeton, Careby, Holywell and Aunby).

Stewards and Marshalls

Stewards will be posted throughout the course, and are on hand at all times to provide help, guidance or medical attention. There will also be a tail walker, to accompany those who wish to take a more leisurely pace and enjoy the scenery.
