Robin Hood Half Marathon


On Sunday 26th September  seven members of Grantham Running Club made the journey to Nottingham to take part in the 40th anniversary event of the Robin Hood Half Marathon. The sun shone on almost 5,000  runners, all taking their place at the start line on Victoria Embankment.

The global pandemic put a pause to the race in 2020; it was a return from testing times but together Nottingham came alive. The city lit up with thousands of runners and supporters. Cheers flooded the course and finish line making for a great atmosphere. The course took in Nottingham city centre, Nottingham castle and Wollaton Park with a start and finish on the Victoria Embankment making for a memorable weekend.

First Home for GRC was Robin Atter finishing in 01:33:32, a new PB for Robin by 6 minutes. Next home was Robert Howbrook finishing in 01:43:19. Richard Litchfield came home next at 01:48:57. Stuart Reader finished with a time of 01:49:59. John Nevard 02:06:49. Esther Fraser-betts finished with a time of  02:07:27 a PB by almost 7 minutes, and Mark Edwards finished with 02:17:02.
