GRC took a small contingent of seven on the short trip to Newark. A beautiful day albeit very warm to be taking on a half marathon. Despite this there was some great performances on the day. Joe Clarke was first home and marked his debut run in the Green and Black with an impressive time of 1:28:56. Next back from GRC was the consistent Tony Johnson who came finished in 1:31:47. Richard Payne was third man in a very respectable time of 1.33.10 on his first run at this distance. He was closely followed by the marathon metronome Gav Meadows who put in a solid time of 1:33:26 as part of a longer run. Despite the soaring heat there was an impressive personal best from Stuart Reader who crossed the line in a time of 1:47:47 but felt there was even more to come. Also running from the club was another marathon expert,Neil Emerson, who finished in a time of 1:51:06 and finally making a return to the half marathon after a few years out was Warren Stark who despite limited training came home in a decent time of 1:53:04 only a few minutes short of his best.
