1966 Leicester to Skegness (5th)

Organised by Leicester Walking Club

This year there was a record breaking number of starters for the biennial Leicester to Skegness race.

The race was won for a second time by Karl Abolins in just over 18 hours 10 minutes. 84 started and 47 finished, one of them being Cyril Evans C158 of Leicester, who became only the second man to get into double figures.  27 became new Centurions, 12 of them Dutch and therefore eligible to join the newly formed Dutch Centurions.  The match for the “Netherlands Challenge Trophy” was won by the British.
