MABLETHORPE’s own Iron Man and Iron Woman challenge event saw a dozen gym members at the Station Sports Centre go through the pain barrier in a bid for glory.

The challenge saw five rounds including running and cycling with eliminations after each. Twelve were whittled down to two for the final rowing event which saw Nev Pickford and Debbie Prince earn themselves the Iron Man and Iron Woman tags after seeing off their rivals.

Iron woman Debbie Prince said: “I attend the Station gym regularly and decided to enter the competition to see how far I could get.

“I have really enjoyed this competition and can’t quite believe that I got to the final and won.”

Duty Manager Steve Evans added: “We thought it was a real success. We had a lot of interest in the final from other members who wanted to watch, and it’s certainly something we’re looking at doing again.”
