North Lincs Half Marathon

Ady, Catherine, Matt, Rob and Magaretta
Returning from illness
PB for Ady

Five members of Grantham Running Club travelled to sunny Scunthorpe on Sunday to join over 1500 other runners in a quality field for the North Lincolnshire Half Marathon. The race was started at 9am by seven year old Krystal Proctor after winning a competition to design the race t-shirt that was awarded to all finishers to the

accompaniment of the bagpipes. At the end they were rewarded by a stadium finish.

Yet again the evergreen Rob Howbrook and Catherine Payne put in superb performances with both earning themselves a place on the podium and a trophy each with 2nd place in their respective age categories with Rob finishing in 91:09 and Catherine finishing in 96:12.

Matt Kidd slashed over five minutes from his previous personal best to finish in 91:33
Huge PB for Matt
in only his second ever race at this distance. Ady Walker knocked nearly two minutes off his previous personal best time to finish in 1:46:18. Magaretta Murray made a welcome return to the half marathon distance as she continues her journey back to full fitness after her recent lung infection bravely finishing in a time of 2:46:19.
