National Cross Country Relays
L-R: Andrew Pask, Rick Dobbs, Nev Chamberlain and Paul Davis
Grantham Running Club made their first appearance at the prestigious National Cross Country Relays at Berry Hill Park, Mansfield. The event which attracts the very best distance runners that England has to offer was run in unusually dry conditions. The GRC team which was made up of Rick Dobbs, Paul Davis, Andrew Pask and Nev Chamberlain ran the 5k relay event with a light hearted approach, just being happy to be there. Finishing with a combined time of 1:33:57, which in the incredibly strong field was good enough for 159th place. Andrew said; "the standard at this event was unbelievable. During my lap GB Olympian Andy Vernon overtook me at what seemed like 100mph. It really was a pleasure to be running with these guys".
