On Sunday 25th March, 3 members of Grantham Running Club travelled to Rushcliffe Country Park for the rescheduled Rushcliffe Park 10K. Having previously been postponed along with several other events due to an untimely visit from the "Beast from the East", the runners were treated to a surprisingly warm spring morning for their outing. With it being the first "warm" race of the season, some competitors found the change in temperatures challenging, although the runners enjoyed being able to run in shorts and club colours again following the recent spells of bad weather and various cancelled/postponed events.
Runners from the club commented that the course was lovely and scenic and well marshalled, although there was some difficulty to get up to pace with a lot of the competitors being tightly grouped during the first lap of the two lap course. First home for GRC was Stuart Baty in a time of 50:08, followed closely by Martin Carter at 51:09 and Simon Hartley finishing in 1:04:57.
