In the quadrathlon, a competition for the under-11s where athletes score points for competing in four events, Louth AC youngster Bethany Ardern did exceptionally well to take second place.

A team from the club competed in the Track and Field County Championships at the weekend. Meanwhile a squad of the club’s veteran runners took part in the immensely popular Beverley 10k on Sunday.

Kevin Wallis was first home for the men in 41.07, finishing 84th overall and 3rd in his age group, and Debbie Simpson was the club’s first woman in 46.44.

Other Louth runners making the trip across the Humber were Mick Dean (45.40), Philip Jackson (47.37), Trudy Roberts (48.40), Jane Cope (53.56) and Ros Jackson (58.30).
