Saxilby 5k Road Race

Grantham Running Club had two athletes taking part in last Sunday's Saxilby 5k Road Race. This popular event takes place on closed roads with the start and finish situated in the St Andrews Community Centre. Unusually for a race this small it had full chip timing which must have helped attract a high quality front row of the race with the winner going sub 15 minutes. First back for GRC was Gerry Hyde, disappointed that injury prevented him from competing in his Team GB tri-suit this weekend but glad to be out there running hard. A slightly more undulating course that expected meant Gerry narrowly missed out on his target of a WMA 80% but all things considered was pleased with his 19:34 which gave him 14th position overall and a grading of 78.53%. Also running was Robert McArdle taking part in his second race in 20 hours and finishing in 39th place with a time of 22:15 which was worth 71.46%
