The race also saw three generations of the same family taking part with Barry and Janet Norton, their daughter Sarah-Jane Eggleton and her son Matthew all complete.

With personal best times for many of the runners at this flat fast course, everyone was, needless to say, in high spirits at the end.

There were also several club members running there debut 10K , some of which recently attended a 5k to 10K course held in Skegness and organised by the club.

The race was very well marshalled and is becoming a firm favourite for many runners.
