It was a first marathon for Katie Thomas, supported by Steph Scott and Guy Hatton.

Sarah and Shawn Thomas took half of the marathon distance together as a relay team duo.

The marathon starts near the Humber Bridge before making its way through the city centre.

Shawn completed his half of the marathon in 2:10.52 before handing over to Sarah who completed the second half in 2:30.22.

Steph finished in 4:41.30, bagging a new PB on the way, running alongside Katie (4:41.31).

Guy, who was a key part of the training plan for the other club runners, finished in 5:14.53, racking up another 26-miler towards his 100-marathon target.

Paul Wilson faced amarathon distance in Rutland.

This was Paul’s first long run since April, due to recent niggles, and he clocked 3:44 for second in his age group and 28th overall.

“The last 10k was tough, but not surprising given lack of preparation,” he said.

Lee Cook ran in the Lincolnshire Wolds at the Wolds Ten (formerly the Tough Ten, which suits this hilly course).

Lee completed the 10-miles in a time of 1:30.39.

Also running for Skegness and District were Helen and Charlie Luff, finishing in 1:35.04.
