Despite the wet conditions this week, Skegness and District runners were out in force across the country this weekend.
Four club runners took on the Tour of Tameside Half Marathon, a mentally tough race out and back in one straight line. First back for the club was Mark Sands who finished 5th overall with a time of 1hr 20mins. Second back was Lee Cook, smashing his PB by 5 minutes in a time of 1hr58. Next back for the club was Rebecca Grice 2hr19 then Helena Shelton 2hr41.
Dave Kenyon took on a very hilly Nottingham 10k and was pleased with his finish time of 52mins 9secs. The Nottingham 10km supports the Nottingham Breast Cancer Research Centre with £5 of every entry will be donated to support its important work and research.
Also heading North to take on the rat race 'The Wall' ultramarathon was Guy Hatton and Robin Harrison. Starting at Carlise Castle, this 73-mile ultramarathon which competitors have the option of tackling over either one or two days, takes in open countryside views that extend as far as the eye can see throughout Hadrian’s Wall Country.
Guy Hatton absolutely smashed the full 73 mile ultra in an incredible 17hours 15mins 57seconds. Congratulations Guy! Guy dedicated this race in memory of his close friend. Meanwhile, Robin Harrison finished his ultra in 25+ hours which was a great achievement considering he is currently injured. Excellent determination and strength! Well Done to both gentleman!
