Put your best foot forward and walk 5K through Lincoln to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support.

On Sunday, September 4 the city centre will host its first sponsored 5K walking event, organised by City Of Lincoln Council in association with the local Walking for Health Scheme.

The route will show off some of the city’s landmarks, including the Arboretum, the River Witham, Brayford Pool, the University of Lincoln, the Stonebow and finishing up Steep Hill to Lincoln Castle.

Fiona Roche, MacMillan Physical Activity Practitioner at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “I am delighted to be involved in the 5k walk with City of Lincoln Council in September. As part of our project ‘Get Active Feel Good Lincolnshire’ we provide support, motivation and information to anyone going through cancer to become active again.

“The majority of participants on the project start off by doing short walks. This can range from five minutes for some up to 30 minutes for others. It is very specific to the individual and their fitness levels. It will be great to have a goal to walk 5K as it will help to keep them focused.

“The walk finishes up Steep Hill, which I feel is very significant to me and our cancer survivors as the cancer journey is an uphill battle. They get so much support from family and friends so to be able to walk up that hill together is going to be very emotional for each and every one of them.

“I am looking forward to the day and will be so humbled and proud to see all our participants complete this walk.”

The walk is expected to take between one hour and 90 minutes to complete, and includes some steep inclines and steps. Alternative routes can be provided for wheelchair users and people with pushchairs.

Dean Reed, Health Walks Co-ordinator at the city council, said: “Whether you are recovering from cancer yourself or have been affected by cancer in some way, people are invited to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support so they can continue to help the 2.5 million people living with some form of cancer here in the UK.”
