Strong winds and muddy trails didn’t deter runners from taking part in a countryside half-marathon.

The Caythorpe DASH half-marathon and 5k fun run took place on Sunday, and saw competitors come from all over the country to take part.

The half-marathon route saw the 39 competitors set off from Caythorpe Sports and Social Club and head down Gorse Hill Lane to the PFI Karting Track, then across to Stubton and across to Hough-on-the-Hill, before coming back up through Frieston and back to the finish line at the playing field.

The winner of the half-marathon was James Ross, from Caythorpe, who crossed the line in 01hr 21mins 35 secs.

Nicholas Bell, from Hough-on-the-Hill, was in second place (01-26-53) and close behind was Paul Clark, from Caythorpe (1-29-44).

First lady home was Vicki Blackshaw, from Wisbech, with her dog Finn in 1-45-57.

The winner of the 5k race was Riley Maksymiw-Magan in 26mins 04 secs, with Kieron Sellars in second place (26-17-68) and Lucie Bel seconds behind in third (26-30-20).

The race was sponsored by the Waggon and Horses pub in Caythorpe, and even purchased the electronic race equipment for the DASH committee.

Dave Fidler, race director, said: "We've had a good response from people and we're learning as we go.

"We've got a family of people who keep returning for our events now and it's laways nice to happy faces who keep coming back."
