Billingborough 10K

Grantham Running Club's Gav Meadows made the short trip to Billingborough on bank holiday Monday to take part in the first staging of the village's 10K race. This was basically a 'test' event & was kept small & low key with only 100 runners lining up on the start line. There was also 5K 'Fun Run' which set off just before the 10K race. The whole event was a huge success & next year should see a much bigger event. Gav crossed the finish line comfortably in a time of 43:52.

Gav said 'This was a pretty challenging 10K with some long, steady climbs & some fairly hot weather too. I felt that I paced it quite well & couldn't have performed much better on the day all considered. Although small, this was a very enjoyable & well organised event & I have no doubt that it will become a fixture on the local race calendar when it expands next year.'
