Although this road race is a fast, flat course, the conditions were considerably windy on Sunday so first club member home, Angela Thompson, was thrilled to post another personal best time of 1:37.13, knocking 1 min 47 secs off her previous best. She was the fifth lady in her age group.

Leanne Rickett came out of the new year starting blocks with a bang and set herself a great marker for the 2019 season of 1:45.06.

Ian Kocko had suffered recent injury but pulled out a solid comeback performance, clocking 1:59.29.

Skegness and District Running Club holds training nights in Skegness, Spilsby, Boston and Horncastle.
