Sunday 2 October 2011




The 2011 Police Sport UK Marathon Championships took take place in Mablethorpe on Sunday 2 October 2011  at 10.00 am. The event was incorporated within the official Mablethorpe Marathon event. Thank you to all those who took part.


Race Report (by PSUK Race Coordinator and competitor Steve Broadbent)


The 2011 Police Sport UK competition was held in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire incorporated within the annual 'Mablethorpe Marathon' event. The police race attracted 68 entries from 25 UK Police Forces.  62 runners started the race with 55 finishing the full marathon and a further four completing the half marathon event. There were a total of 260 runners in the 'open' event.


In many respects, we could not have asked for better weather. The race started at 10.00 am with sunny, clear blue skies and temperatures soaring to 70 to 80 degrees by mid-day. The race was very well marshalled with plenty of water stations and isotonic drinks so runners had no problem hydrating. The course was typically flat, Lincolnshire countryside traversing minor roads and picturesque country lanes. The marathon was a two-lap course with a 1.5 mile stretch along a very cooling promenade seafront from Sutton-on-Sea to Mablethorpe. Here runners were greeted by holiday makers and given much needed encouragement at the 12 and 25 mile stages in the race.


Cheshire Police were out in force with Rob Grantham, Malcolm Fowler, Vince Van Weorkom and Neil Pettie being placed 1, 2, 3 and 6th in the police race and 1, 3,5,and 11th in the 'open' race! They therefore swept the board in both police and open events with the first three achieving sub-three hour times.


Sarah Hill from Hampshire Police was 1st lady and 2nd lady in the 'open' event with a time of 3.03. The Gloucestershire team were also strong as 2nd police team with the Strathclyde team scoring 3rd. The Strathclyde ladies also won the ladies 'open' team ladies prize.


Carl Quinn from West Yorkshire was first veteran 40+ male in a time of 3.11 with the 1st veteran 35+ lady, Trish VanRoyan, another Cheshire whippet, finishing in 3.41.


A big thanks go to the organisers and officials of the Mablethorpe event who made the police very welcome and provided excellent support and liaison throughout the competition.


The 2012 Police Sport UK event is planned to take place within the Jersey Marathon event on October 7 2012. In the Olympic year we hope this venue will attract a good field from the UK police.
