Poppy Run 10k

Two Grantham Running Club members competed in the Poppy Run 10k on Remembrance Sunday, organised by Boston and District AC at Friskney village.

 Befitting the occasion, a two minutes silence was held by all competitors and race officials just before the race commenced. A heavy fog lingered at the start of the race and never lifted.

 Paul Jepson was first to the finishing line for GRC, recording a time of 51:33. Richard Urquhart next, finishing line in 55:06. Both runners pleased with their times in the wintery conditions – but largely running to support a cause close to both their hearts as an ex-serviceman and a serving member of the Armed Forces.

The race was won by Paul Lyons City of Hull AC in 33:45.

All race proceeds from the race are donated to the Royal British Legion.
