Rosey Nosey Fun Run 2022

Welcome to the Second Rosey Nosey fun Run/Jog or Walk organised by the fire crew at Wainfleet fire station in aid of the Firefighters charity and supporting the local community of Wainfleet . Why not make a day of it and pick up some last min Xmas presents or enjoy a brewery tour and sample some of Batemans finest Real Ales on site.

As a fourth-generation family brewer, craft brewing is in Batemans blood.

In 1874, George Bateman began making beer for thirsty Lincolnshire farmers who knew a good pint when they tasted one. Ever since, we’ve used the best-possible ingredients and craft brewing methods to ensure the highest quality, not the lowest cost. And we have teamed up with the Firefighters Charity to put on a great pre-Christmas run from our world famous brewery in the historic town of Wainfleet.

A brewer of firsts

Like any true craft brewer, Batemans thrive on a culture of innovation. Whether it’s brewing specialist beers, we’ve never been afraid to go our own way.

In fact, Batemans were one of the first British brewers to experiment with seasonal ingredients that were a bit different to the norm.

Showing our creative side

With Mr George’s Unique Flavours, Batemans not only pioneered flavored beers, They also started something of a tradition for themed monthly specials. There was a place in the market for quirky brews that captured the mood of the moment, celebrated a big event or told fun stories that people could relate to. So they continued that tradition over the years by brewing up all sorts of ideas.

But our drinkers’ favorite of all time has to be Rosey Nosey. Our original Christmas brew became an instant hit in 1998, with its fruity Christmas cake flavour and striking bar profile – a Santa beard and flashing nose on the pump-clip. To this day it’s a festive classic and continues to be one of the country’s most popular Christmas drinks.

Needless to say, Rosey Nosey has a firm place amongst our Legends. And you can now be part of the legend while supporting the Firefighters Charity along the way and getting your hands on a legendary bottle of Rosey Nosey when you cross the finish line ( Adults only ) Under 14's get a goodie bag.

The Run Route

You will start outside Batemans Brewery . The route then takes you up the high street past the Christmas market and carousel, waving at Santa on his sleigh before turning onto Magdalen Rd  past Wainfleet Fire station and Fire Appliance appliance, round the primary school and back down Magdalen Rd passing the firestation again before heading down Brewsters Lane, across the level crossing, onto Crows Lane, then turning left with the last stretch down Mill Lane alongside the river steeping and finishing at the  Brewery itself. When you cross the finish line you will be given a bottle of Rosey Nosey and NEW for this year a beautiful medal for your efforts.

The 1k route starts at the same place as the 5k up the high street turning at Santa's sleigh then finishing under the finish gantry outside the brewery, every finisher gets a goodie bag.

Extra Information  

We have been really lucky to get a complete road closure for both runs for you all but this in itself can make parking a bit more difficult.

Please be aware that the Highstreet B1195 will be closed at 10:30hrs from the bridge over the river Haven where Boston road meets vicarage lane (What Three Words location ///moons.stickler.bared) up to spilsby road and northolm (What Three Words location // perused.swung.signed)

Please arrive in enough time to register at the brewery and collect your number  ( What Three Words location ///field.purse.point ) . There will be a bag drop off point at the registration where you will need your race number to be able to collect it afterwards if you want to change into your cocktail dress or tuxedo and enjoy the rest of the day or evening :-) 

Wainfleet is a small historic Lincolnshire town so it doesn't have the same amount of parking as modern towns and cities so can we ask that you car share where possible or better still get the train from Skegness or Boston which drops you off 100 meters from the entrance to the brewery and start of the run. If you are traveling by car please be considerate when parking and don't block in the residents. Just a wee reminder the high street will be closed and coned off from 10:30hrs so no parking allowed here . There is some parking at St johns church What Three Words ///diet.guitar.umbrellas or Magdalen primary school What Three words //glides.extent.sugar. You can park along  Boston road and vicarage lane. Please don't park on Mill lane as this is a small single track road which you will be running down towards the brewery to finish.
