Mablethorpe Running Club has been racing locally recently and kicked things off with the Belchford Three Churches 10k.

Once again driving rain did not deter the 80 competitors who turned out to run this undulating and unforgiving road race in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds, starting and finishing at the village of Belchford.

Two Mablethorpe RC members were in action with Nigel Booth completing the course in 43m 28s (11th) and Guy Willey, returning to running after injury, finishing in 53m 48s (43rd).

The winner was Ryan Page (Cleethorpes AC) who ran the course in a mere 36m 22s. The 1st lady to finish was Jill Ottley (Cleethorpes AC) who finished in 45m 37s.

Louth AC hosted the 31st Wolds Dash Series around Hubbards Hills and a few members of Mablethorpe Running Club joined athletes for the fourth race of this year’s event, with results as follows: Under 11 Boys (2.21km) - Colby Hawse: 14m 03s, Under 11 Girls (2.21km) - Rebecca Millward: 13m 47s, Hope Midgley: 11m 29s, Under 15 Boys (3.22km) - Liam Hawse: Race 1: 13m 24s (PB), Under 15 Girls (3.22km) - Paige Midgley: 15m 45s, Veteran Men (10.155km) - Nigel Booth: 45m 00s, Nigel Cross: 46m 06s, Veteran Women (10.155km) - Sharon Wheatley Margarson: 55m 48s, Elaine Wilson: 57m 04s.

The final of the Wolds Dash Series of races will be held on September 3.

Last week the second Click’em Inn 5-mile road run was held at Swinhope, hosted by Wolds Veterans AC.

Making the most of the last of the light summer evenings, three Mablethorpe ladies were among the 87 entrants:

Tammy Rainbow was 29th in 35m 32s, Sharon Wheatley-Margarson finished 66th in 41m 47s and Elaine Wilson was 75th in 43m 38s.

As in Race 1, the winner was once again N. Martin (Caistor RC) who finished in 27m 37s. The 1st Female was also the same as Race 1, again B. Wilson (Cleethorpes AC) 9th overall in 31m 42s

The club meets at Mablethorpe Athletics Club on Sherwood Fields in Mablethorpe at 6.30pm every Monday and Thursday. Anyone, whatever your age or ability, are most welcome to come and run. Visit
