Advance race entry includes admission to Belton Horse Trials for you. (Kids go free) The race takes place from this 17th Century National Trust property though the deer park to the folly at the top of the hill and back through the woodland. You will be rewarded by one of the best vistas in English running if you have time to pause at the summit. Attractions to include: beer tent, food fair, shopping aisles, MAD BIKES Mountain Bike display and interactive sessions, CASE tractor driving challenge, Jez Avery Honda Buggy and Trials bike stunt show, Show Jumping, Pony Club competitions and of course, the International Class horse trial. This is a great family day out for less than the cost of a normal race. Each finisher will get a bottle of Sleaford Brewery's 10k Trail Ale. Due to the nature of the site we regret we are unable to accept any entries on the day and MP3 players are not permitted. Please allow plenty of time to get to the start line as a very large crowd is expected.
This year we will be raising money to help an extraordinary woman who was paralysed in a horse riding accident and is defying the odds in her battle to walk again after becoming the first person in the UK to use a bionic suit.
Claire Lomas may be paralysed from the chest down but that has not stopped her from setting the staggering challenge of walking the 2012 Virgin London Marathon to raise £50,000 for Spinal Research using a ReWalk suit.
The former event rider, who had her accident during an event in 2007, took her first tentative steps using the revolutionary walking aid at a clinic in Hull in late January.
She has not set herself a target time to complete the 26.2 mile challenge but expects it could take her up to two weeks to complete the course.
A spokesman for Spinal Research said: “It’s the first time anyone has attempted to walk the marathon when paralysed and we are so glad Claire came to us saying she wanted to raise funds for our charity.”
