Three young Boston and District Athletic Club members have followed in the footsteps of Lord Coe, by running at the Heckington Show.

On the same track where the double Olympic gold medallist once raced, William Wright stormed home to win the under 11s 800m race by more than 100m from the second-placed runner.

Blake Garwell gave a typical gutsy performance and, with a brave sprint finish, he gained second place in the boys’ 1,500m race.

William’s sister Hermione ran a very good race and was third girl home in the 1,500m race.
