Mablethorpe Running Club host the seventh East Coast Classic 10k race on Sunday at 10.30am.

The race is full and no entries will be taken on the day, but organisers hope to attract as much support as possible for the runners.

It starts and finishes outside the lifeboat station on Mablethorpe’s prom, half-a-mile from race HQ at Mablethorpe Athletics Club, on Sherwood Road. The route follows the seafront past Sutton-On-Sea and Sandilands before turning back.

The event kicks off with a 3k fun run from 10am.

* Mablethorpe RC member Paula Downing took part in her 52nd marathon at Halifax.

She was one of only 82 to finish the gruelling multi-terrain course and crossed the line 28th in a time of 3hr 56min 16secs.
