Oundle 20 Mile

On Sunday 10th March, 4 members of Grantham Running Club took part in the Oundle 20-mile race, alongside 384 other runners. The race takes place over an undulating course and sends runners through pretty Northamptonshire villages and round country lanes to give an excellent base indicator for those training for spring marathons.

First back for GRC, and the clubs current Men’s Marathon Champion, was Piers Pye-Watson. He completed the race in a great time of 02:24:40.

Next was Kevin Wallace who crossed the line in 02:52:58. Kev is in training for the Manchester Marathon, and this was his longest run to date, so he was pleased with the time he completed in.

The first and only female for the club was Zoe Wragg, who finished in 03:04:59. Zoe was happy with her pace over the long distance and hopes to do the same in her marathon next month.

Focusing more on building distance and less on speed, in preparation for his ultra-marathon later this month, Dale Towning completed the race in 03:24:09.

James Fisher from Long Eaton Running Club won the race in a speedy time of 01:57:33. First female back in a time of 02:09:04 was Claire Frankland.
