Fenland 10 – West Walton, Wisbech

Scott Jones with Andrew Pask in the chasing group
The pair after the race
Grantham Running Club's Scott Jones and Andrew Pask decided to test their recent Half Marathon training over the shorter 10 mile distance at the Fenland 10. The race which included the Eastern Veterans and Cambridgeshire county championships attracted a very strong field. In perfect running conditions, on a course that is usually at the mercy of the elements, the Grantham pair ran with the added pressure of a friendly inter-club rivalry. Andrew forced the early pace but at the 4 mile marker a confident Scott decided to take control of the GRC duel.  Scott, unable to shake-off the challenge of his club mate, was seen to have a worried look over his shoulder at 8 miles. With Andrew closing the gap late on, Scott found an extra gear for the final mile to finish with a 1min 40sec personal best in 67:02. Andrew was close behind with a time of 67:41, his third best over the distance. Andrew said; 'The weather today was perfect for fenland running so we had no excuses. We piled the pressure on ourselves to run well so I was glad we managed to post a couple of strong times.'
