SPALDING Triathlon Club’s first 10k road race – the Tulip 10k held at Easter – attracted a fantastic number of competitors who helped raise money for charity.
The Spalding club is known for putting on a good event, and regularly attracts about 270 athletes to its West Pinhbeck road race. However, the Tulip 10k was the first of its kind and drew about 230 runners from all over the country, first and second places going to runners from Mansfield.
On Monday the club presented a cheque for £942.09 to Spalding and Holbeach branch of Macmillan Cancer Support, the rest of the proceeds from the race going to Springfields Horticultural Charity.
Club secretary and treasurer Aimee Stocker said the 46 members were hoping to bring a triathlon event back to Spalding, but were awaiting the assistance of South Holland District Council.
