Despite the heat, hundreds of runners took part in the Caistor ‘Sting in the Tail’ 10k race on Sunday.
The first race in 2012 attracted more than 200 runners and this year’s race surpassed that, with 283 runners entering and 246 taking part. And it was a home win for Caistor resident Nick Martin, who crossed the finishing line first in a time of 37 minutes 37 seconds having been in the places in last year’s race.
Martin has to battle it out against Louth AC runner Nick Marsh, who came second.
The duo were closely followed by Ryan Page, of Caistor Running Club, who was the first under-18 to cross the finishing line.
Lisa Mawer, of Wetherby Runners, was the first lady home, followed by Beverley Wilson, of Cleethorpes AC.
