The Great Grimsby 10k & Family Run is an annual event which takes place during the summer.
Started last year, the Great Grimsby 10k is hugely popular and attracts those of all ages and abilities; from professional runners who are highly experienced to beginners who have never completed a 10k before.
One of HMT’s core objectives is supporting the fitness and wellbeing of the local community which is why we’re excited to be supporting the Great Grimsby 10k, organised by Tape2Tape.
The race begins on Doughty Road, making its way down Abbey Road, through Bargate and onto Scartho Road before looping round Louth Road and coming back up on Peaks Parkway before finishing in People’s Park.
All 3,000 places have been filled but we’re excited to announce that HMT St Hugh’s has two free tickets to give away as well as a host of other prizes.
To celebrate our partnership with Tape2Tape we are running a Facebook competition where you could win;
- Entrance to the sold out Great Grimsby 10k
- 1:1 with top nutritionist Dr Mayur Ranchordas at St Hugh’s Hospital
- Individualised training plan to help prepare for the event
- £100 voucher from Metres to Miles
If you’ve never run a 10k before, live in Grimsby and want to improve your fitness and health then why not take the Grimsby 10k challenge. HMT St Hugh’s will be on hand to provide you with an individualised training plan, one to one with a top nutritionist and on completion of the race, you will be presented with a £100 voucher to spend at a local running shop; Metres to Miles.
Health and fitness within the community is hugely important and we want to help two individuals take on the 10k challenge. By providing expert advice as well as the entrance fee, we are hoping to kick start the beginning of someone’s healthier, fitter lifestyle.
If you’ve not a run a 10k before and are keen to get fitter and healthier, then this is your opportunity.

There are a whole host of benefits which come with running; from easy accessibility to a range of health benefits including weight loss, strengthening of your joints and improved heart health.
Running a 10k may seem like a daunting challenge but with the race in just over 16 weeks’ time and with the help of HMT St Hugh’s and some determination, we think this is more than possible.
If you want to challenge yourself, have a friend or family member who you think should enter then share our competition with them.
If you’re the lucky winner, we’d love to follow your journey to see how you got on with training and will ask for a photo and written diary to share online, but this is not a requirement of the competition.
