|Some of the runners after the race|
Grantham Running Club had ten runners taking part in this year’s Worksop Half Marathon which was established in 1982, The Worksop Halloween Half Marathon (also known as ‘the scenic one’) takes place on the last Sunday in October every year. The course runs largely through Clumber Park, which provides beautiful scenery and is perfect for spectators to support their family and friends along the route. This is a hugely popular event which sold out well in advance and sharp 3 miles climb at the start marks the beginning of the tougher winter races after the flatter ones during the summer months. First home for GRC was Gav Meadows slightly down of where he would like to be after have run a full marathon last weekend closely followed by Matt Williamson setting an amazing third half marathon PB of the month on his toughest course yet! Ironman Paul Davis was next completing a multi-marathon month along with his wife Caroline which they finished off in style with Saturday’s parkrun complimented by a race that evening at Wollaton Park as a warm-up for this half, Caroline opted to run in fancy dress for the Worksop Half. Once again Paul Davidson sacrificed his race to act as a guide runner for a visually impaired athlete guiding her safely round the 13.1 miles route in just over two hours.
