There must be easier ways of getting from Lincoln to Sleaford but for Sarah High and Caroline Davis there could only ever be one option, RUN!
The 10th Spires and Steeples challenge was held on Sunday 15th October with Grantham running club being represented by Sarah and Caroline in the 26 mile event and Rachael Smith and Paul Davis taking the 13 mile route.
Starting in uphill Lincoln the route follows the Spires and Steeples heritage trail through the Lincolnshire countryside, finishing at the Arts and Craft centre in Sleaford.
Passing through several picturesque villages along the way the trail is mainly off-road and so the warm and dry weather was welcomed by all.
The favorable conditions under foot enabled both Sarah and Caroline to better their times from last year by around 20 minutes. The un-timed event is more about the pleasure of the run than chasing a personal best though and the relaxed, friendy atmosphere has competitors returning year after year.
