Two Caistor charities have benefited, for the second year in a row, from an increasingly successful summer running event.
As result of the second Sting in the Tail 10K, organised by Caistor Running Club, the town’s LIVES group and Lions Club have each received a donation of £500.
Race Manager Mark Hodson said: “This year’s event was, like last year, well supported, with nearly 300 runners from across Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties taking part.
“On behalf of them and Caistor Running Club we’re very pleased to be able to make a donation to both LIVES and Lions. Since the event, the feedback we’ve received has been extremely positive, with 100 per cent of respondents saying they would definitely do it again.
“Thank you to all of those who were able to support us-through sponsorship, by volunteering on the day and by actually running in the race. Definitely another proud day for Caistor and its running club, which has grown to almost 100 members.”

The 2014 ‘Sting in the Tail 10k’ will be run on Sunday July 13 and will include the DECA personal challenge, which this year took the form of a 100k run with the last 10k coinciding with the ’Sting in the Tail 10k’.
