It was a perfect day for the Lincolnshire Cross Country Championships at Biscathorpe, near Louth, with a hard frost, full sun and blue sky.

Biscathorpe is becoming the main venue for the championships.

It has a course with lots of ups and downs, plenty of mud and a stream to negotiate.

Grantham Athletic Club's only under-11 boy Max Kolbert put in a great performance, finishing in second place.

In the under-13 boys', Theo Bacon continued his strong performances, finishing in fourth place, with Ellis Baker and Alex Holt pacing well to give the GAC team third position. After the race, Alex, who had managed to run with only one shoe after losing one in the fast flowing muddy stream, returned to try to find it but to no avail.
