Bright but cold conditions greeted runners at the second Lincs League Cross Country of the season at Castledyke Equestrian Centre on the outskirts of Boston. Skegness and District once again had an excellent turnout of runners, with the now famous ‘water jump’ providing the spectators with an excellent viewpoint to cheer on runners. The men’s team was led home by Mark Sands, with Jason Stainton and Mark Lyon providing good back up to complete our first scoring team. Andy Shelton, Brian Darrington and Charlie Luff worked hard throughout to make up the second scoring team.
In the ladies race Katy Hockam was the first runner back for the club just outside the top 20. She was supported by Helen Luff, Zoe Ward and Louise Darrington. Helena Shelton and Hannah Chapman worked hard together throughout and crossed the line hand in hand, showing the support and camaraderie within the club.
Ian Kocko ran the Fenland 10 Miler and represented the club as the solo runner and finished with a chip time of 1hr24. Ian said the course was “brilliant.”
