Athletes ensured the turkey and chocolates didn’t affect them over the festive period as they took part in the SADRC GOMAD 2019 challenge.

Those taking part were asked to run, walk, cycle or swim a minimum of one mile a day every day throughout December - including Christmas Day.

Seventy of the 74 entrants completed the challenge, raising around £200 each for the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and Skegness RNLI.

The GOMAD scheme was the brainchild of Skegness and District RC member Robin Harrison, who is one of the many club members from the Horncastle area, where SADRC host weekly training nights.

Lillian Everitt, 89, was the oldest competitor, while Robin’s cousin Norma also took part in Tampa, Florida.
