Wednesday evening saw the fifth and final race in this summers Louth Athletic Club Wolds Dash series.

About 180 junior and senior runners from across the region have taken part in the monthly races since the first meet in May.

Points are awarded to the first 10 finishers in each race and athletes must complete four of the five runs in order to qualify for the series title.

Adults run a different course each month, ranging in distance from 7,137m to 11,875m over the 
challenging hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Juniors run distances ranging from 1,200m to 4,230m depending on their age group and all races start and finish in Hubbards Hills.

Anyone interested in taking up running or volunteering with the club can meet at 6.15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the London Road Athletic Ground.
