The Newton’s Fraction half marathon in Grantham on Sunday was as good as usual. It has an excellent start and finish at The Meres, the route is pleasant with two lovely hills and the weather and atmosphere was just grand. Piotr Dura finished in a fine 1h 37m 38s followed by Darren Wilkinson in 1h 47m 12s, Andy Pritchett 2h 02m 22s and Paul Zemontas in 2h 17m 37s.
Liz Walton and David Watt ran the Wolf’s Pit fell race in the Peak District on Sunday. The race was 5.6miles with 450m climb, and it was windy with strong head winds. Times were 1h 08m for Liz, a fantastic improvement of 9mins over last year, and 59m 10s for David.
