Grimsthorpe Castle Half Marathon

Grimsthorpe Castle Half Marathon 

Grantham Running Club had two members competing in this year's Grimsthorpe Castle Half Marathon, recent heavy rain meant there were a few late modifications to the course due to flooding. The revised course covered the picturesque landscapes surrounding the Grimsthorpe Castle near Bourne and was a mixture of undulating hard limestone trail, tarmac and field trails. This mixture of surfaces provided a tough challenge especially when the one muddy section was covered twice. Despite it not being a fast course Lucy Roberts recorded a PB and Gordon Geach finished in a time he would have been happy with on a flat tarmac race.

Gordon Geach 1:43:33

Lucy Roberts    1:56:23
