About Mablethorpe Running Club

The 2018 race will be held on Sunday 9th September. You can read about the race lower down the page and more details about this year’s event will be posted in the Spring.


The East Coast Classic is organised by Mablethorpe Running Club but that’s not all that we do at the club. We cater for a whole range of abilities: beginners, plodders, joggers, runners who compete and those who don’t. For more information about the club, click on the “Club Info” tab above.


2017’s race was held on Sunday 10th September and was, like last year, chip timed.  

The race was full by 6 July, thanks to the efficient online entry system provided by Sports Entry Solutions. Below is a link to the online entry page. [You won’t be able to use it, since we’re full up. However, it will be useful for entering in 2018, probably from about the 1st of June.]

The 2016 and 2017 events filled up very quickly. Keep an eye on things in May or June next year (we will not be accepting entries before then) so that you can get your entry in early for the 2018 race!

The East Coast Classic 10k is a flat, fast, seafront 10k race, which is traffic free and definitely a PB course. The course starts outside the lifeboat station on Mablethorpe’s prom and follows a route along the seafront past Sutton-on-sea and reaches Sandilands. This is where you turn and follow the same route back to the finish outside the lifeboat station. The course is accurately measured and well marshalled with water stations.
