The friendly little events on the Lincolnshire Coast.

Vigilantes Running was born out of a desire to see fun, accessible, and not-at-all to be taken-too-seriously marathons in a quiet corner of England, where until now, such races just didn’t exist. There’s a great community of long-distance runners “over here”, but no events for us to enjoy. Of course, we welcome runners from everywhere to come and join us in our little corner of England, to enjoy our coast and to sample our hospitality.

Would you prefer to enter by post?

Some folk have reported a few issues navigating the new website. I don't want you to be left out, so I'll take good-old paper-based entries for the Maravan as well. It actually saves you a couple of quid in PayPal fees.

If you'd prefer to enter the relays or half by post, let me know and I'll sort a form out...

Course Map

Following a couple of requests, here's the map of the course.

It's 7 laps, starting and finishing in roughly the same place (I'll go out and run it myself with a GPS to triple-check).

For those of you who ran last year, I'm pretty certain I can take the first little sprint from Spar to the finish line out and still get 26.2.

Entries now open

The Vigilantes Maravan festival of running is now open for entries.

We have already had a good number of last year's entrants who have pre-registered for this year, but there are still spaces available in every event.

There are two days of marathon running, plus a relay race on the Saturday and a half marathon on the Sunday.

Remember, the more people that enter, the more I can spend on the goody bag and the medal. So it'd be great if you could encourage your friends and clubmates to join us for a fun weekend of running, larks and caravans.

Permit Number ARC 15/173

Now fully insured, with an ARC permit

Thanks to the pre-entries in the less than 12 hours that entries have been open, I've earnt enough to submit the application for the permit. The next target is, of course, the medal...

Maravan 2015 is on!

I come bearing excellent news. My man at the campsite has confirmed that we've got the weekend after the owners' Christmas party.

Therefore, The Cleethorpes Vigilantes Maravan will return, bigger, brighter and better, for 2015. The date will be Sat 21st and Sun 22nd November, with an expo, naturally, on Friday 20th November!

As last year, I'll be trying to source some decent grub for the goody bag; this year, I'm also trying to get some space for a masseur and there'll be a good quality medal, beer and rock as a bare minimum for everyone who completes the maravan.

Vigilantes Maravan Half - 22 Nov 2015 - Unaffiliated

Vigilantes Maravan Half - 22nd November 2015 - for unaffiliated runners.

Unfortunately, due to the expenses that running a small non-profit event incurs, entry fees are non-refundable and entries non-transferrable. In case of exceptionally poor weather making running too dangerous, entries can be deferred to next year's event.
