Five members of Grantham Running Club saw 2018 out in style, participating in the Advance Performance Peterborough 10K on New Year's Eve. The multi terrain event took place at the scenic Ferry Meadows area of Nene Park. Largely run on hard surface, the course took in varied landscapes of meadows, lakes and woodland in one of the largest country parks in the region, with a bouncing bridge adding extra New Year's Eve excitement to the course. The December weather was kind, with runners enjoying a crisp and bright morning.
First home for the club was Stuart Baty, who was pleased to have completed the enjoyable course within 50 minutes, in a time of 00:49:34. First woman home for the club was Tracy Webb, in a commendable time of 00:58:23, which Tracy was delighted to note was her fastest 10k race time to date. Next home was Kate Marshall in 01:01:29, followed by Claire Fritz in 01:05:10 and Julia Hallam in 01:10:25. The GRC runners enjoyed celebrating New Year at this well organised and engaging race in beautiful surroundings, and look forward to racing at Ferry Meadows again in the future.
The race was won by David Hudson of BRJ Run and Tri in 00:32:22, with Chloe Finlay of Peterborough AC the winning woman in 00:37:40.
