Rushworth Hits Vietnam
Grantham Running Club's, Paul Rushworth took part in "La Course de Printemps" 10K Road Race in Vietnam. The race was organised by the French International School in Saigon and attracted around 200 local and international runners. The heat of the rising sun made the second half of the race more difficult but despite the hot, humid conditions, Paul finished in 44 minutes and 57 seconds.
Meanwhile, closer to home, Sarah High and Lucy Roberts joined GAC's Keith Measures and John Bainbridge to compete in the mixed team competition at the Caythorpe Dash. They finished 11th in 8hr 54min and 16sec, with Sarah at 2:05:59 and Lucy at 2:20:49. Mark Wilson also completed as an individual in 1:48:03.
In what sounded like horrible conditions, both GRC runners returned pleased with their performances. Andrew Spencer earned a new PB in 20:20 and Nick Payne ran close to his best at 24:17.
