In aid of St. John Ambulance in Lincolnshire
Part of the annual Fun Day (11am until 5pm) at Grimsthorpe Castle
Horse box entrance via The Oaks off the A151 Colsterworth to Bourne road. Large horseboxes may enter the Park via the estate office entrance off the A151 (to the East of The Oaks). This entrance is not to be used by smaller horse carrying vehicles. We need to minimise the risk to pedestrians but allow access for larger horseboxes which may find The Oaks entrance too small.
Downloading and prefilling the form in preparation speeds up the entry process on the day and helps but is not essential...there will be forms available to fill at the event!

It is not possible to start before 12.30pm for the safety of fun runners in the park.
