Two local charities have benefitted, for the third year in a row, from Caistor’s summer running event.
As a result of the third Sting in the Tail 10k, organised by Caistor Running Club, the town’s LIVES group and Caistor and District Lions Club each received a donation of £500.
“We had another very well supported event last summer with 340 runners from across Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties taking part,” said race director Mark Hodson.
“On behalf of them and the Running Club we’re delighted to be able to make a donation again to both LIVES and Lions.
“Thank you to all of those who were able to support us either through sponsorship, by volunteering on the day and by actually running in the event.
“It was another proud day for Caistor and its Running Club, which now has more than 100 members.”
Graeme Hamill and Mark Hodson presented the money to Lion President Ron Lyus and Bob Oxley, representing LIVES, at the club’s AGM held in the Salutation Inn, Nettleton.
The 2015 Sting in the Tail 10k will be run on July 5th.

”Since the race started in 2012 we’ve seen the numbers of finishers increase by nearly 75% and this year’s race promises to be even bigger and better,” added Mark Hodson.
