The West Pinchbeck 10K Road race is renowned for being flat, fast and warm and Sunday’s run was no exception, with the sun breaking through the early haze.

A welcome stiff breeze helped the 300 runners on the last 3k of the race as Boston Community Runners were well represented.

Kim Pittam, Emma Cook, Beth Lines, Dianne Houghton and Sarah Clarke in action.
