Organisers were delighted with the turn out an the way everything went.

And they say the link up with Boston Borough Council Christmas Market worked really well, with both events getting boosts.

Event organiser Sarah Burton said: “It was a fabulous event and the weather was perfect for it. It was great seeing the spectators clapping everyone round and everyone had a smile on their faces when they finished.

“From the ones I was speaking to most were saying Oh you will do it again next year won’t you!! To see the stalls and santas in the Market Place at the finish was brilliant and big thanks must be given to Kristina Willoughby and the Events Team from Boston Borough Council who helped with make it happen.”
