Grantham Running Club sent ladies’ and men’s teams to the second match of the Lincolnshire Cross Country League at Belton House, many of whom had never run a cross country event previously.

On firm ground but with the weather closing in, Penny Hodges led the ladies’ team home with a 10th place finish in a time of 29min 10sec. Pushing Penny all the way was team-mate SJ Willis with 29:25 in 12th place. Completing the ladies’ team A was Ros Sadler with 37:56.

Next to finish in front of the famous house were Justyna Gill 38:14, Victoria Dexter 41:13, Angela Carr 43:22, Belinda Baker 45:08 and CJ Walker 49:00.

For the second time in two days, Andrew Pask led home the men’s GRC XC team, with a time of 40:52 on the Belton course. He was closely followed by the ever improving Matt Williamson whose time of 41:15 was impressive for a man making his XC debut.

Next to finish was Peter Bonner in 42:30, continuing his recent good form to give the club their best ever men’s team result.

The B team were led in by Ben Mason, coming home in 45:31, then Neil Emerson (47:43) closely followed by Marc Tremain (48:19).

Nathan Walker’s time of 52:23 was good enough to grab fourth place in his age category. Paul Davis had to withdraw from the race due to a calf injury picked up at the National Relays the previous day.
