Grantham Running Club made its debut in the Lincolnshire Cross Country League by entering both a ladies’ and men’s team in the first match at RAF Cranwell last Sunday.

There were respectable performances from Sarah High who finished the ladies’ 5km event in 23min 30sec. Mark Hillson and Andrew McAllister completed the men’s 10km race in 47.30 and 52.25 respectively.

l Three GRC runners took part in the notoriously undulating Worksop Half-marathon at Clumber Park.

Constant hills and strong winds took their toll and by halfway personal bests were out of the question. Iain Brown was quickest of the trio in 1.31.28 and Andrew Pask managed his second fastest time at the distance in 1.32.54. Scott Jones completed the 13.1 miles in 1.39.31.
