Skegness & District Running Club commemorated their first anniversary with a party and presentation evening at their club headquarters, the Crown Hotel in Skegness.

It has been a very memorable year for the club, which formed in November 2014 and already has more than 100 members from Skegness, Spilsby, Boston and in ­between.

After the votes were counted, the awards were presented to: Mark Simons (Most Improved Male - sponsored by Lincolnshire Runner), Charlotte Armsby (Most Improved Female - sponsored by Total Sports & Supplements), Norman Eddie Smith (Performance Of The Year - Sponsored by Complete Runner), Hilary Depper (Golden Oldie Award - sponsored by County Care Independent Living and Outstanding Achievement Award - sponsored by Metres To Miles) and Helena Shelton (Club Person Of The Year - sponsored by The Crown Hotel).

Helena asked to share her award with husband Andy, a very fitting tribute as both have worked tirelessly since day one to help develop Skegness & District Running Club into a fun, friendly and supportive club.
