The Sting is in the Tail for Coasters

Report by Rebecca Porter courtesy of the Skegness Siren

Skegness Coasters headed to Caistor on Sunday, July 2 for the sixth running of the popular Caistor ‘Sting in the Tail’ 10K.

The event, which is organised by Caistor Running Club, hosts a field of 500 runners competing over the glorious Lincolnshire Wolds.

This year’s race, which coincided with Caistor’s annual street party ‘Caistor goes…Mardi Gras!’ is renowned for its ‘sting’ before the finish line.

Coaster Sue Smith said: “I had a brilliant run up to the 8K mark, it was a fast course, but then you turn a corner and you face the gruelling ‘sting’; an amazing array of quite dramatic climbs”

Sue also commented that along with her fellow Skegness Coasters, she ran with “a banana, a yellow chicken, a panda, and a bride and groom.”

It was Sue’s third time running this course, completing it in 52 minutes and 16 seconds; a new course personal best.

Club run leader Jackie Rhodes said:

“It was the hardest, hottest and hilliest 10K I have ever done…will I be back next year? Of course!”

First Coaster in and taking part in the race for the first time was Robert Rennie, in an impressive 43 minutes and 20 seconds.

Janet Harmston finished in 52 minutes exactly, closely followed by David Young in 53:09.

Andy Wilkinson beat the hour, gaining a course personal best of 59:34.

First timer Carole Tumber finished in 1:01:23, Phaedra Bryant in 1:01:44 and Helen Kennedy with a course personal best of 1:01:58.

The Skegness 10K is now open for entries.

This year’s race will take place on Sunday, November 19.

Marshals are needed on the route and volunteers at race HQ to help on race day.

Coasters clock up 60 miles in one day

Report by Rebecca Porter courtesy of The Skegness Siren.

Local running club Skegness Coasters took on the challenge of organising a 60-mile summer relay on Sunday, June 25.

Mark Harvey devised the 60-mile route which included a mixture of flat country roads and hilly, multi-terrain sections.

The club hadn’t undertaken a relay challenge like this since 2012 so was very eager to make it a success.

The route of the relay.

On the day, over 30 members of the seaside club took part in at least one leg of the event; some enthusiastic runners even opting to complete four legs of the event simultaneously (26.2 miles – marathon distance).

The relay started at the club’s base, The Welcome Inn, in Skegness, where members meet every Tuesday for their weekly club training session.

The legs were as follows:

Leg 1 – The Welcome Inn to Burgh Market Place (3.9 miles), Leg 2 – Burgh Market Place to the top of Mill Hill (4.4 miles), Leg 3 – Mill Hill to the top of Fordington (4.3 miles), Leg 4 – Fordington to Somersby (6.1 miles), Leg 5 – Somersby to Ruckland 4.5 miles, Leg 6 – Ruckland to Little Cawthorpe (7.4 miles), Leg 7 – Little Cawthorpe to South Thoresby (7.5 miles), Leg 8 – South Thoresby to Farlesthorpe (6.8 miles), Leg 9 – Farlesthorpe to Huttoft (6.2 miles), Leg 10 – Huttoft to Chapel St. Leonards (5.6 miles), and finally Leg 11 Chapel St. Leonards to The View, Winthorpe (4.1 miles).

Leg 5 underway – Somersby to Ruckland
There was tremendous support from members of the club, family and friends; who assisted with driving between the transition points to transport runners, much-needed drinks and snacks and for morale support also. There were a few obstacles to overcome on the day including: nettles, corn, a field full of curious cows and a wrong turn or two, but it all added to the running adventure.

Secretary of the running club, Elly Rutherford, reflected on the event: “It was great running with friends, in parts of our beautiful county that our trainers had not seen before.”

Member Carl Clark added: “The event was fantastic and showed one of the many things I love about Skegness Coasters; that we are all supportive of each other’s abilities. Today made me realise running isn’t about how fast you can run a mile in, it’s about encouraging one another along the way.”

Nathan Fisher said: “I can’t wait for the next one!”

“Thank you to all involved in organising the event and making it such a success, and a huge thank you to The View, at Winthorpe, for hosting us for our finish line ‘get-together”, said Press Co-ordinator Rebecca Porter.

Extra challenge on leg 6 – How many runners can you fit in a phonebox?

On Wednesday, June 14, Janet Harmston ran the Wolds Dash, a 7.3 mile route based in Louth.

She completed the race in 67 minutes and 4 seconds, placing 5th in the veterans category.

On the following Wednesday (June 21) Janet also took part in the Click’em Inn 10 mile run; another local Summer Series event.

Janet finished in 1 hour, 34 minutes and 20 seconds.

Skegness Coasters caters for all abilities and meets every Tuesday at 18.30 at The Welcome Inn, Skegness.

Coasters Rock up to races

Report by Rebecca Porter courtesy of the Skegness Siren.

This weekend Skegness Coaster Martin Ross travelled to Brighton for his marathon length race.

The route winded through the city streets before finishing up on the spectacular Brighton seafront, renowned for its ‘buzzing’ atmosphere and roaring crowd support.

Martin completed the race in a great time of 4 hrs 19 mins, despite the extremely hot weather.

Skegness Coaster Sue Smith fancied a race further afield and opted for the Zurich Marathon, on April 9th.

The event is a fantastic backdrop for Zurich’s charming old town, the elegant Bahnhofstrasse and the beautiful lake Zurich.

“It was a reasonably flat course around the lake and there was beautiful scenery and it was very well organise. We all got a great medal and a bright orange finisher’s top at the end. I would run it again but today’s temperatures (highs of 25 degrees and no breeze) were not ideal for running but all in all it was a good experience with lots of support and shouts of ‘Come on Skeggy’ from ex-pats, along the route.”

Sue achieved a fantastic marathon time of 4hrs and 18 mins; gaining a new personal best.

The ‘Tealby Trail Challenge’ was attended by four Skegness Coasters also on Sunday April 9.

The 9-mile race was organised by Wolds Veteran Runner’s Club and raised money for their designated charity ‘Lincs Air Ambulance’.

Neil Stocks, Ben Peel, Jackie Rhodes and Carole Tumber enjoyed the race and the sweet treats for all finishers.

“The trail run was very hot, very hilly and very hard work, but the cake (especially the rocky road) at the end was lovely,” said Neil.

“There was beautiful scenery along the route and it was one of the best races I’ve ever been in” added Jackie.

Danny completed the run in a fantastic 1 hour 52 minutes and 15 seconds stating:

“It is the longest distance I’ve covered at an event….it was a good, enjoyable run with water, mud, sand, sweat and lots of sun!”

Coasters brave elements in Cambridge and Grantham

Report by Rebecca Porter courtesy of the Skegness Siren.

On a blustery and rainy Sunday morning two members of the Skegness Coasters running club competed in events.

One in the county and one further afield.

Janet Harmston participated in the ‘Newton’s Fraction Half Marathon’, which is organised by Grantham Athletic Club.

Skegness Coasters Interclub Local Race League 2017

It is not obligatory to take part in the race league, although if you do take part in a league race you will gain points and will be added to the league table. (As long as you are a paid up member – subs due by 31st January 2017)

Once again there is a male and female league. One point is awarded for taking part in and finishing a race, 10 points for first male/female Coaster, 9 for 2nd, 8 for 3rd etc etc. You must wear an official club vest (not the green training top) – this is a general EA rule which we are following this year and will be adhered to strictly when awarding points.
Your 10 best race points will go towards the final count.

We have added the Seabank Marathon Relay and Boston Marathon Relay in this year too – hopefully we can get some teams entered, take part in a marathon but not necessarily run 26.2 miles!
And yes, we know Skegness 10k is not on there. We are not being spoilsports but as it is our own club race and brings in some revenue for the club once the charitable donation and organising costs are covered, and we are always short of marshals, we decided to leave it off the league – this will make it fairer on those always committed to helping at the event and will also hopefully encourage more club member marshals!

Skegness Coasters 10K 2016

10k

Report by Rebecca Porter courtesy of the Skegness Standard.

The much anticipated third annual Skegness Coasters 10K was held at Southview Leisure Park last Sunday. The race was a huge success after months of planning and organising by the volunteer Skegness 10K committee.The race started at the rear of the Southview complex where runners completed a small loop of the caravan park before heading on to Everington’s Lane. From there, participants raced along a big loop of country roads – Hide’s Lane, Ingoldmells Road and Younger’s Lane – before heading back to Southview Leisure Park to finish their run. Finishers were met by the infamous Jolly Fisherman and the Skegness Carnival Queen and Princesses, who happily handed over the well-earned medals.

Beci Goodrick, a non-affiliated runner from Spilsby, commented: “The event was so well organised, everything seemed so smoothly-run, and all the marshals were so lovely and incredibly supportive. I am looking forward to next year.”Skegness Coaster Rebecca Porter added: “This annual event makes me proud to be part of the Skegness Coasters – such a friendly, supportive bunch of people and a truly inclusive running club.
