More than 2,000 enter Cleethorpes running challenge

More than 2,000 runners took part in the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon and 10k running challenge in Cleethorpes.

Associated British Ports has been a headline sponsor for the event, organised by Tape2Tape, since 2017. This year’s race was also undertaken by those attempting to qualify for England Athletics Age Group Masters Half Marathon competition, so the stakes were high.

ABP Head of Marine, Paul Bristowe, presented winners on the day with their trophies. He said: “The event was a resounding success with runners across the country completing their challenge ably supported by Tape2Tape’s volunteer ‘Race Makers’ across the course, along with crowds of family and friends lining Cleethorpes promenade.”

Tape2Tape MD Nicola Pattison said: “Congratulations to all the runners taking part, and a huge thank you to all the volunteer Race Marker’s for ensuring the day went so smoothly. The race brings so much to the local community, our thanks to ABP for their continued support.

As in previous year’s the event raised valuable funds for Cleethorpes RNLI along with many other local and national charities.

Along the route’s final stretch Cleethorpes Brass Band filled the air with motivational music.  As runners completed the race they were treated to a donut and awarded this year’s bespoke pebble shaped race medal, featuring a striking oystercatcher, many of which could be seen feeding on the shore during the race, alongside the iconic Cleethorpes pier.
