On a torrential Sunday 31st October, 5 runners from Grantham Running Club raced in the Worksop Halloween Half marathon. Battling the rain and wading through multiple puddles straddling the course. Gav Meadows was first in for Grantham in 95 minutes and 46 seconds, improving by over a minute on his time for the Cambridge Half two weeks earlier. Next Peter Bonner came home in 98 minutes and 57 seconds his first half marathon since February 2020. Catherine Payne was the first woman back for GRC in 103 minutes and 31 seconds; winning her age category with an impressive age graded score of 77.0%. Craig Drury completed the course in 108 minutes and 4 seconds, with an age graded score of 60.92%. Caroline Davis, who ran the course in fancy dress, in a time of 112 minutes and 52 seconds came in with an age grading of 66.9%. This is her 5th time running this race and her 4th in ghoulish fancy dress. It was a well organised event and despite the weather the atmosphere was brilliant.
