Grantham Running Club participated in the prestigious National Cross Country Championships at Donington Park on Saturday.

The very large field of 4,382 consisted of some of the very best runners in the country in both the Senior Men’s and Senior Ladies’ races. This and the tough and testing course really demanded everything from the GRC team members.

Rob Howbrook put in another fine performance over the men’s 12km course and was first in for GRC with a time of 1hr 0min 31sec, followed by Andrew MacAllister in 1.10.39 and then Liam Vincent 1.14.27 and Neil Emerson 1.14.44. Unfortunately, Nev Chamberlain was forced to withdraw due to injury.

The ladies competed over an 8km course and were represented by GRC team captain Sarah High, who finished with a time of 47.15, and Magaretta Murray in 1.01.21.
