A sunny yet breezy Sunday morning saw Skegness & District Running Club members attend three events across the country.
First to Burghley House near Stamford for the inaugural running of the Burghley 7. This sensational seven mile course had incredible access to private areas of the Burghley Estate and saw six members of SADRC take part.
Husband and Wife duo, Shawn & Sarah Thomas were first back for the club. Shawn and Sarah ran together and recorded a time of 1:05:47 and 1:05:48 respectively. Lee Cook followed closely behind with a time of 1:08:01, next back was Julie Sandiford in 1:10:14. Bringing it home for SADRC were our fabulous ladies Dawn Sykes & Jane Martin in a time of 1:11:33.
Heading further South were our members competing in the Cambridge Half Marathon. Billed as one of the UK’S biggest and most beautiful Half marathons, and famous for being the UKs fastest selling Half, we were lucky to be represented by three of our team on the start line. Ian Walker broke the 2 hour mark with a fantastic time of 1:58.20. Our incredible female duo of Abby Herdman & Dawn Allen were able to use this race as another training run for the London Marathon next month. This was Abby’s first Half Marathon and with Dawns support they crossed the line together in a time of 2:38:42.
Carol & Will Daulat crossed the country to participate in the Red-Hot Toddy 10k race in Todmorden. Carol said “I am pleased with my result considering the brutal hill at the start and ankle deep puddles”. Carol finished in a time of 1:16:09, with husband Will coming in just under the hour mark with a time of 59:42.
On this International Women's Day weekend, many of our members also took to their local parkruns which collaborated with “This Girl Can” to celebrate a Women's strength, determination and right to be competitive in this modern world. We celebrate and support all women, no matter of their size, their body type, their ability or their limitations. Skegness and District Running Club is a friendly and inclusive club for all.
Skegness and District Running Club run from Spilsby on a Tuesday night, Horncastle on a Wednesday and Boston & Skegness on a Thursday.
