Boston Community Runners took on two events over the weekend.

Friday evening saw the Scredington 10k - better known as the Cake Run due to the treats on offer at the finish line - hosted by Sleaford Striders.

Emma Cook and Beth Lines accompanied their children around the village course in the 3k event.

Fourteen club runners lined up for the 10k country lane race.

The course had a few long gradual inclines and was a good test for those more used to the flat roads around Boston.

First club runner back was Dan Clark, finishing in 39.44.
