Grantham Running Club sextet enjoy grandstand finish
On a somewhat chilly but dry Sunday, six members of Grantham Running Club took part in the Doncaster 10km road race.
Starting at the racecourse, the course ran through the heart of the town. Part of the route was an out-and-back arrangement, so the GRC contingent were able to look out for fellow clubmates coming past in the opposite direction, with all the accompanying high fives and shouts of encouragement evoking a great feeling of team spirit.
Runners then had the thrill of finishing right in front of the main grandstand on the racecourse, with the crowds shouting them down the home straight. They were all then rewarded for their endeavours with a smart medal, a welcome hot chocolate and a slightly less obvious snack for an athlete – a pork pie.
