The second Bolingbroke Breaker of 2014, hosted by the Skegness Coasters, attracted 47 entrants.

Nestled on the Lincolnshire Wolds between Horncastle and Spilsby, the race start and finish is in the pleasant village of Bolingbroke.

This event was an eight-mile race with the course renowned for being scenic, but also challenging due to the hills en route.

Paul Stupple, having struggled with injury during the Seabank Marathon a week earlier, managed an excellent time of 1h 07m 20s finishing in 23rd place.

Next in a Mablethorpe vest, Sharon Wheatley Margarson continues to strive finishing 32nd in 1h 12m 20s with Elaine Wilson not so far behind in 34th place in a time of 1h 14m 22s.

The race was won by Paul Jackson of Louth AC in a mere 48m 35s.

The 1st Lady to finish was Lisa Foster of Cleethorpes AC in 58m 12s (9th place overall).

Sharon Wheatley Margarson and Elaine Wilson once again returned to the third in the 2014 season of The Croxby Crawl events.

Hosted by Cleethorpes AC, this is now the 32nd year of a series of runs around the same location and races now total over 125 since it began back in November 1983.

There were 85 competitors at this summer’s evening event.

As can be expected of the Lincolnshire Wolds, the course takes on 8.88 miles of undulating and uneven terrain so, once again, both ladies were happy with their performances.

Sharon finished in 66th place in 1h 22m 29s (12th Lady). Elaine finished in 69th place in 1h 23m 58s (15th Lady).

The race was won by Paul Jackson (Louth AC) in 54m 21s. The 1st Female to finish was Lisa Mawer (Wetherby Runners AC) in 59m 57s (14th place).

The club meets at Mablethorpe Athletics Club on Sherwood Fields in Mablethorpe at 6.30pm every Monday and Thursday.
