|Paul, Holly and Joaquim|
Three members of Grantham Running Club stormed to success at the West Pinchbeck 10k on Sunday 30 September, tackling the fast, flat course through quiet Lincolnshire country roads to complete the popular race. Participants started in good race day conditions, but were met with a brisk headwind at the 5km stretch of the course, typical of the Lincolnshire fens, which slowed down the majority of participants.
Joaquim Jeronimo led the GRC contingency home by smashing out a personal best of 40:10 in what has been a remarkable run of PB’s this season for the GRC newcomer, affectionately known as Flash by fellow club members. Holly Durham was second home for the club bagging a podium place with 3rd prize for the ladies in a time of 44:09, despite running a cautious race on account of a persistent Achilles injury. Paul Jepson maintained recent form to complete the race in a commendable time of 49:57, inching ever closer towards a 70% age grading.
