A team of Boston-based memers of the Skegness & District Running Club took part in Sunday’s Seabank Marathon from Boston to Skegness.

The Pilgrims, as they called themselves, competed in the relay section.

The team was made up of members new to running in the last year or so, and they finished seventh in 4 hrs 54 mins.

The team, led by Sarah Burton, included Danielle Basker, Sanjiv Jain, Roberto Rocci, Gemma Wills, Lynsey Ballans Kerry Bennett and Ela Buyukkaraca Smith.

Ela, who has just completed the club’s latest beginners course, was thrilled to have been part of the team.

“It was so exciting, I loved every minute”, she said.
