*Two Skegness Coasters ran the Doncaster 10K which starts and finishes at the Doncaster Race Course. Rachel reflected “it was an extremely cold start but ended up being ideal running conditions. We really enjoyed the course which included the city centre. It was mainly flat with a few sneaky hills! On finishing we were rewarded with a lovely medal and a pork pie or a quiche.”

Times: Nathan Fisher 49:44, Rachel Shinn 1:07:21.

*Skegness Coaster’s Chairman Ian Bailey ran the very popular ‘Percy Pud 10K’. The Sheffield-based, festive event, which sold out within an hour of opening, boasted over 2500 runners. Ian completed the course in a fantastic 58 minutes and 41 seconds. All runners got a t-shirt and a Christmas pudding upon finishing.
