Three members of Grantham Running Club competed in the North Lincolnshire Half Marathon on Sunday morning.

Based in Scunthorpe, with the promise of a fast and friendly course and a stadium finish, more than 1,600 runners took to the start line. The breezy conditions didn’t trouble the GRC runners too much, with excellent times posted all round.

An in-form Andy Atter came home in 94th position with an outstanding time of 1hr 27min 31sec – a new personal best which earned him a UK ranking over the distance.

Following closely behind in 114th position was Rob Howbrook with 1:28:28 earning him third place in his MV55 age category.

Also running for GRC was Neil Emerson, finishing with a very respectable time of 1:48:08.
