Oundle 20 Mile

Grantham Running Club’s Matthew Williamson and Caroline Davis took part in the inaugural Oundle 20 Mile NAD Road Race on Sunday. The event was originally scheduled to take place 3 weeks before, but was one of the many casualties of the weather & was postponed. It’s ideal for those training for a spring marathon and follows a scenic course around the gently undulating country lanes in and around the pretty Norhamptonshire villages of Fotheringay, Nassington, Yarwell and King’s Cliffe.
Matthew, who is training for the Manchester Marathon, finished in 2:34:45. He didn’t race flat out as his big day was only 2 weeks away. Nevertheless, this was still a very respectable result indeed. This was his first ever approximately
20 mile road race.
Also training for Manchester, Caroline crossed the line in 3:04:03 which was good enough for 4th place in the Female Veteran 45 category. She also took the sensible approach of using the event for training rather than racing & was 4 minutes slower than her personal best for the distance.
