The Belvoir Challenge is a very popular annual event taking a route which includes the Grantham Canal, through the hills and woods and this year past the Old Castle vegetable garden where the trees have been cut back from the last ridge giving outstanding views of the vale. Adam Holland ignored the very muddy conditions and the dozens of stiles, to finish the 26miles first in 3h15m. He was presented with a lovely bouquet of flowers which made a nice present for a friend that evening. He was followed by John Miller who walked in 8h15m and Sue and Steve Needham in 8h32m. Cathy and Ernie took the 16mile route to finish in 6h30m.
Piotr Dura ran yet another half marathon to complete The Coventry Decathlon Half Marathon in a season’s best of 1h33m35s.
