An alternative torch relay run for Mablethorpe runner Keith

LOCAL runner Keith Lamb will run as part of an alternative Olympic torch relay next week.

Keith, of Mablethorpe, is taking part in the Endurance life relay round the country which follows the torch route ten days later, but the torch is carried by humans every step of the way.

Keith will run the Legbourne to Mablethorpe leg from 11.20pm on Monday, arriving in Mablethorpe two hours later.

Hundreds of runners have paid the minimum £10 donation to be involved.

“To be a part of the alternative relay is a chance I couldn’t turn down plus it is raising money and awareness for a great cause,” said Keith.

Charity CHICKS who help disadvantaged children will benefit from money raised.
