Grantham Athletic Club’s Tony Madge tackled the scenic but far from flat Wollation Park Easter 10km and his time of 44min 20sec gave him a 1st Vet 60 position and 65th overall from the 400-plus field.

Despite the local Belton House 5km parkrun being cancelled for the bank holiday weekend, it did not deter the club’s enthusiasm as they had 16 athletes competing at seven other events.

Star performance of the week went to Will Tucker who was first across the line at the Lincoln event and reduced his personal best by a significant 47 seconds.

Will’s sister Sophia also had a fine performance at Lincoln, reducing her PB by 17 seconds. At the Peterborough event, Aaron Hunt continued to show good form with a top five position in the 500-strong field and reduced his PB by two seconds.
