On a warm Saturday 11th June, Grantham Running Club members Marj Spendlow and Peter Jennings took on the 5k and 10k Great Estates races at Belvoir Castle.
Taking place over picturesque trails, Marj took on the 5k event which saw a dreaded hill climb over the first few Km’s of stone and more stone. Then due to a slight detour once by the castle at the top of the hill it was downhill and then flat to the finish. Having done this race in August 2021 where she completed it in 32.56 back in 2021, she was thrilled to cross the line in 30.45 giving her 3rd place and 3rd in her age category.
Peter Jennings he took on the 10k, so he had to tackle the hill climb twice, but he dug in and finished in a swift 49.04 minutes and 9th in his age category.
