Boston United FC.
Boston must be one of the smallest towns in England to have a soccer team in one of the top 4 divisions. Because money talks in football nowadays, Boston are in Coca Cola League Two. If you're an ex-pat, or slightly out of touch, that's equivalent to the 4th Division in old money.
Fading Premier League (the old 1st Division) & ex-international stars like Paul 'Gazza' Gascoigne have been associated with Boston in recent years.
Bicycle, bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle
Boston lies at a convienent position on the national route 1 cycle network.
To the south you head out towards Wisbech, whilst to the north the route heads out to Woodhall Spa and then onto Lincoln.
The trip to Lincoln especially makes for a pleasant day trip from Boston (approx 4-5 hours), and if you plan it carefully you can return on the train via Sleaford.

A very tough Marathon
The Seabank Marathon does exactly what it says on the tin - The Marathon course runs alond the seabank over fairly rough ground and stiles etc. At least the terrain is flat. You won't get a good time - reckon on an extra hour. If you like bracing sea breezes look no further!
The direction is usually reversed each year between the two town of Boston and Skegness.
The race is uually run about the first or second Sunday in June (2003 - 8th June)
Equipment: Usual Marathon stuff.
