The ladies of Skegness & District were the first all-female team to cross the line as well, finishing sixth overall.

The hat-trick was completed with Paddy the spaniel belonging to the club’s Clif Abbott becoming the first dog home.

The weather was kind for the marathon although the wind was very strong in places.

“We have had a fabulous day today,” said Helena Shelton, who was part of the winning Skegness & District ladies’ team.

“It all went very smoothly.”
