Bolingbroke Breaker breaks records again.
Skegness and District running club held their Bolingbroke Breaker 8-mile race on Wednesday, 27 June. A record 84 runners entered the race, taking on the challenging course around Old Bolingbroke.
A total of 38 Skegness and District members took part, first back for the club and second overall was William Kelly 48:32, followed by Paul Jackson 50:48. First female back for the club was Emma Marshall Telfer 1:04:35.
The club’s next Bolingbroke Breaker, this time a 10k route, will be taking place on Wednesday, 25 July. The run consists of challenging hills on quiet country lanes. The cost of entry is £4 and all entries are taken on the night. Registration is at the Black Horse Inn, Old Bolingbroke, from 6pm and the start will be at 7.15pm.
Club member Zoe Ward travelled to Holkham on Saturday, 30 June to take part in the Holkham Hall 10k. The event is set within the grounds of Holkham Hall Estate and has plenty of “up” sections to add to the challenge. But, despite these challenges plus record breaking temperatures, Zoe finished the race in 59:39
Sunday, 1 July saw the rescheduled City of Lincoln 10k which was originally due to be held in March but was postponed due to the snow, which now seems a distant memory as the rescheduled date was the hottest day of the year so far.
A total of 36 members of the running club took part, including Jenny and Wayne Waite who were competing in their first 10k race, finishing in 1:24:01 and 1:05:24 respectively.
First back for the club was Paul Jackson 36:27 and first female back for the club was Jane Martin 53:26.
Despite the heat, Maria Yuill smashed her 10k PB finishing in 55:37, as did Elaine Broomfield in 1:10:03 and Emmjean Hearn beat her time from last year by over 3mins, completing this year’s run in 56:22.
Meanwhile, Janet and Barry Norton, who are affectionately known at the club as Grandma and Grandpa, travelled to East Harling to complete the 8th East Harling 10k. They finished the race in 1:12:07 and 1:06:34 respectively with Janet coming 3rd overall in her age category and Barry 6th in his.
Also on Sunday, Emma Marshall-Telfer travelled to Rochester for Rachel’s Ranscombe Ramble Challenge. The route was a very challenging off-road course with plenty of hills but Emma still managed to complete an incredible 33.81miles in 6hours 55mins.
