Giant sportive!

by | 10 April 2021 | Gainsborough, Local Charity

Join St Barnabas Hospice on 27th June at Doddington Hall, Lincoln for the charity’s second Giant Sportive event and raise money for your local hospice while taking part. They have new routes taking you to some beautiful parts of Lincoln and the surrounding area.
With a choice of four set distances, there is a route for everyone:

  • Mini: 33 miles – Great for your first sportive.
  • Short: 50 miles – Stretch those legs a little further! One feed station
  • Medium: 75 miles – Good day out! One feed station
  • Long: 100 miles – Be prepared – practice required! Two feed stations

All routes are well marked, with frequent, well stocked feed stations on the two longer routes, to keep riders fuelled for the miles ahead. However, please note the routes are provisional and subject to change.
Once riders cross the finish line, they will receive a goody bag, the contents of which include a finisher’s medal. All those riding in support of St Barnabas will also receive a branded St Barnabas reusable water bottle. For friends and family, the Doddington Hall Estate has numerous shops, cafes and activities for all whilst participants are out on the road.
If you wish to take part, you can sign up at It’s quick and easy and the registration fee sits a £10.00, with a minimum fundraising target of £145.00. Or contact the charity at or 01522 540300.
Entries close on Sunday 20th June 2021 or sooner, as this is subject to availability.
