Rauceby Ripper


Peter Boner
Five members of Grantham Running Club made the short trip to the Village of Rauceby near Sleaford on Saturday to take part in the Rauceby Ripper. The 8.5 mile mixed terrain race starts and finishes near the village hall and takes in various tracks, trails and fields on nearby farmland. The course offers a different type of challenge to most races and is definitely suited to cross country specialists and anyone who doesn't mind getting very muddy!

First to cross the finish line for GRC was Gav Meadows in a time of 1:02:55 (15th position overall) improving on his 2016 performance by almost 5 minutes. Gav was closely followed by Peter Bonner in a time of 1:03:49 (20th) also improving on last year's time. A remarkable performance and really highlighted Peter's talent for off road and cross country races.

Other results: Paul Davis 1:04:55 (23rd), Caroline Davis 1:22:27 (119th after also completing Belton House Parkrun that morning), Andy Barradell 1:43:05 (196th).
