Sunday 2nd June
The Bolingbroke Breaker 10km. The first Wednesday night series event held by SADRC. It is an undulating 10km around the Wolds, as is a popular event for local clubs. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side on Wednesday however a spirited 108 runners turned up for the starting line in the rain.
It was a fantastic evening which saw everyone complete the course. Within the 108 runners, 34 were members of SADRC. Mark Sands finished first with a time of 35:38 followed by Paul Jackson crossing the line 3rd in a time of 37:37 and Chris Reader crossing the line 9th. Angela Thompson has recovered from her marathon a couple of weeks ago, and finished 3rd lady back with a time of 44:34. Gail Davis finished 2nd SADRC Lady with a time of 51:27.
It was a first time 10km race for Maureen McMillan who finished the course in a time of 1:27:33. Lee Cook ran a fantastic 10km PB time of 52:42 and was extremely happy with how the race went.
There were many SADRC running the course for the first time such as Luke Haynes (45:32), Oliver Martin (42:29), Elaine Mitchell (1:04:58) and Denise Andrews (1:12:48).

Woodhall Spa 10km, the one race in the year where you can guarantee it will be like an outdoor oven, and it did not disappoint this year. The week build up was incredibly muggy and this continued throughout the run!
74 orange and black vests crossed the line at Jubilee Park, and combated the heat in fantastic style. We won’t mention, the elephant who over took a few people, an elephant in full costume, in this heat…wow!
Chris Reader crossed the line as SADRC first runner with a time of 39:49, followed by Ed Crawford finishing with 40:33 and Giles Favell crossing the line at 42:22.
For the ladies, Leanne Rickett crossed first for SADRC in a time of 48:17. Gail Davis crossed second with a time of 50:51 followed by Miranda Hall in a time of 56.23. Fantastic running in the morning heat!
