West Pinchbeck 10k
Grantham Running Club had six athletes taking part in this end of season 10k round the very flat but exposed south Lincolnshire Route. The weather was dry and sunny but unfortunately the wind was stronger than ideal and was going to punish the runners on the final 3k straight into it.
Holly Durham was first home for the club in 42:36 and picked up the prize as third lady which was amazing considering this was less than a week after she completed a 150k stint at a local endurance race. Next home was a not fully fit Richard Payne in his 10k debut clocking 44:10 and showing there is a lot more to come followed by Robert McArdle in 45:43. Charnia Kirk then set an all-time best of 47:54 with Tom Durham clocking 53:06. The final runner for GRC was Nichola Cottam with 57:50
