Seven Grantham Running Club ladies contested last month’s Lincolnshire Cross-country Champions event at Louth.

The course was of a challenging nature, being mostly around the edges of fields with long uphill slopes and a final ascent to the finish line.

Abi Schofield finished third in the senior women’s category with a time of 24min 51sec. Her position secured Abi second place overall in the 2013 championships, having raced to two third places and one fourth in the qualifying events.

The GRC senior women’s team finished third overall and also comprised Sarah High, Wendy Tremain, Gwenda Williams, Catherine Payne, Rebecca Jones and Jessica Glading.
