On Remembrance Sunday, two Grantham Running Club members travelled to just outside Wisbech Cambridgeshire to take part in the George Munday 10K, named after a Group Captain who served during the Second World War and was awarded the Distinguish Flying Cross. Organised by Three Counties Running Club, the race is a fast course along flat rural country roads.
With all the runners assembled on the start line, a two-minute silence was held with a wreath laying.
Paul Jepson managed a time of 51:36 while carrying a slight chest infection, only 3 seconds slower than last year’s Poppy run and preliminary results show him as third in his age category.
Richard Urquhart recorded a credible time of 55:20.
The race was won by Daniel Smith from Royston Runners 35:34. Bethan Eversion was the first female with a time of 38:07.
Both Richard and Paul have long connections as serving members of the Armed Forces and commented that it was a well organised and enjoyable race. A cast of a poppy medal was presented to all competitors. A well organised and enjoyable race.
