Run either day, or both, to receive “Vigilantes” medals, and a goody bag packed with local food and seaside souvenirs. This unique race is seven laps of almost-empty out-of-season roads round a virtually flat seaside caravan park.
On Maravan Saturday, for supporters or clubmates of Maravanners, or teams from local Lincolnshire clubs, the four stage relay breaks the Maravan down in to easy to digest chunks of one or two laps each.
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.
Run a Vigilantes event and you’ll never be far from the seaside. The Maravan takes place in a quiet, out of season caravan park, just the other side of the sea bank from the quiet end of the Prom. Relax in one of our lovely B&B’s and recover with Fish and Chips from Grimsby, Britain’s number 1 fish market. Or run The Bridge and enjoy unrivalled views over the Humber Estuary.
Our philosophy is to provide low-key, informal, accessible marathon races in unusual venues, with a local flavour, with a focus on fun and value for money.
