Grantham Running Club's Paul Rushworth was the Club's sole representative in the 27.5 mile version of the Dave Lewis Challenge event in Newark. The off road trail run started and finished at the Kelham Fox Public House. The route passed through Bathley, Norwell, Ossington Norwell Woodhouse, Caunton, Knapthorpe, Upton, Rolleston and Farndon before returning to Kelham via Averham along the banks of the River Trent. The course features were diverse including a mature orchard, a racecourse and a power station. Conditions were ideal for long distance running, a light breeze took the edge off the unseasonably warm temperatures and the threatened rain did not materialise. Paul finished the event in 4 hours 50 minutes in second place, over an hour behind the leader. The event raised over £800 for charity.
