A Mablethorpe Running Club trio headed to the picturesque surroundings of Sherwood Forest to compete in the Active Sherwood Pines 10k Trail Race at Old Clipstone.

Despite the attractive scenery, it was a tough multi-terrain course which challenged the 487 finishers.

Debbie was 50th in 23min 43secs, and Andrea crossed the line 66th in 27.57.
