Runners go off-road

Preparing for the Boston cross country challenge.
Preparing for the Boston cross country challenge.

A total of 36 Skegness & District Running Club members competed at both the Skegness 10K and the Boston Cross Country event at Gipsey Bridge.

In Skegness, through windy conditions, there were some very good times achieved.

Craig Oliver was the first male club runner home, finishing 17th overall, and Jayne Wallis the first female club runner home.

In Boston, some of the club runners were having their first taste of off-road running, including the water obstacle.

It made for an exciting event with the water being a crowd puller for spectators.

Everyone managed to get round with Norman Smith and Alan Wheeler getting home for the club just in front of Andy Shelton and Pete Pocklington.

The club has regular training sessions in Boston, Spilsby and Skegness.

If you are in Skegness you can find them at the Crown Hotel on a Friday evening for a 6.30pm start.

All abilities are made most welcome from beginner to seasoned runner.
