Grantham Running Club participated in the prestigious National Cross Country Championships at
on Saturday. The very large field of 4 Donington Park 382 consisted of some of the very best runners in the country in both the Senior Men's and Senior Ladies races, this and the tough and testing course really demanded everything from the team members. Rob Howbrook put in another fine performance over the men's 12K course and was first in for GRC with a time of 1:00: 31, followed by Andrew MacAllister in 1:10: 39 and then Liam Vincent 1:14:27 and Neil Emerson 1:14:44. Unfortunately, Nev Chamberlain had to withdraw due to injury; hopefully not too serious. Ladies competed over an 8K course and were represented by GRC team captain Sarah High, finishing in with a time of 47:15 and Magaretta Murray in 1:01:21.Photo: GRC XC captain Sarah High.
