Members of the Skegness Coasters Running Club kicked off their racing season last weekend. 

Carole Tumber and Sue Smith (Pictured L-R) took on the Stamford 30k.

This 30k (18 mile) run is recognised nationally as a tough event, providing a good training run for those planning a spring marathon.

Carole said:

“It was a great run, well organised with lots of great marshall’s. The weather was almost perfect for running and and the icing on the cake I got PB knocking 14 minutes off last year”.

Slightly further afield, Robert Rennie, Mark Harvey and Neil Mitchell tackled the Leicestershire half Marathon.

Mark finished in 1:26:21 taking 30th place, Robert 1:29:07 (42nd place) and with Neil hot on his heels in 1:29:11 (43rd place) out of 1,200 finishers.  Robert said “The route was really good but windy in places”.


The Skegness Coasters is a running club catering for runners of all abilities, from seasoned racers to casual joggers looking to get started.

We meet at the Welcome Inn, Burgh Road, Skegness on Tuesday nights at 6.30pm.
