Keyworth Turkey Trot 2014
Seven members of Grantham Running Club took part in this year’s Keyworth Half Marathon including recently married Brendon Buckley making his debut at this distance. Despite only starting running with a 5k Parkrun at Newark earlier this year Brendon who is the super veteran category, has steadily built up his distance through the Lincoln 10k in April to the point where he was able to finish this tough hilly 13.1 mile race accompanied all the way round by his wife Yvonne who is an experienced runner having completed this event last year.
They were joined by Ironman Jez page using the route to check his running speed for his next triathlon and several ladies from the successful GRC ladies X/C team exchanging their spikes for their road shoes.
Meanwhile at Newark Parkrun, Will Parkin just failed in his attempt for a hat-trick of wins. Finishing 3rd in a high quality race in 18:52. Further down the field, Iain Brown was 6th in 20.24, Rob Howbrook 7th in 20.40 and veteran Paul Durham had a new PB in 25.12.
