Sleaford Town Runners took part in Sunday’s annual Sleaford Half Marathon, hosted by Sleaford Striders.

In mild conditions, there was the usual strong wind but it didn’t have the chill factor of previous years. In a great half marathon, if running Cardiac Hill twice wasn’t enough, there was also a nice muddy and slippery mile’s worth of track to tackle, and the Cliff road in between Wellingore and Leadenham to contend with too.

Yet again this sell out race was very well organised and marshalled.

Nine Sleaford Town Runners took on the challenge and the finishing times were: Declan Crace 1hr 44min 35sec, Mark Ellis 2.04.30,Tracy Parr 2.04.40, Jayne MacArthur 2.09.05, Audrey Russell 2.09.07, Helen Barker 2.45.40, Joanne Calver 2.45.47, Shaun Louth 2.45.48, Rachel Pledge 3.04.00.
