The final Bolingbroke Breaker road run of the season took place last week.
It was organised by the Skegness Coasters last Tuesday. The series has consisted of three runs this year, two 10ks and one eight mile event. They take place around the picturesque village of Old Bolingbroke. The routes are scenic and challenging, with some mighty hills to conquer.
“The runs begin and end at the Black Horse Inn in Old Bolingbroke, and the landlord has been kind enough to let the pub be used as a base for the runs. The runs are well organised and well marshalled, [and cost] £3 entry on the day with water stations along the route as well as at the finish, where sweets and chocolate are also given out,” said a spokesperson for the club.
Meals and drinks are available in the pub too.
Tuesday, August 20’s run was the second 10k. It was a warm evening which added even more to the challenging route. There were 39 finishers, led by Skegness Coaster Ben Evison, who finished in 36:58, followed by Paul Jackson of Louth AC in 38:11. Third in was Chris Rainbow of Mablethorpe Running Club with a time of 40:46. The first three ladies were all members of the Skegness Coasters - Fiona Fisher first in 47:50, Helen Blair second in 51:32 and third was Janet Harmston in 53:13.
The Skegness Coasters would like to thank everyone for their support during the first ever Bolingbroke Breaker series, and are hopeful that the runs will be added to the summer race calendar next year along with the Wolds Dashes, Croxby Crawls and Click’em Inn runs.
“The series is open to all runners whether a member of a club or not. It has been well received by many local clubs as well as unaffiliated runners and looks to be even more popular next year,” a spokesperson added.
