   *** Voted as one of the Top Ten Half Marathons in the UK 2012 - Runner’s World ***


Grantham Athletic Club’s  annual ‘road’ race, Newton’s Fraction has been raced over a variety of distances in the past finally grew into a half marathon in 2006.

Newton’s Fraction Half Marathon now its 9th year,is an accurately measured 13.1 mile race ,run under UKA rules.


Starting and finishing at the South Kesteven Sports Stadium the ‘half’ heads out of Grantham into the Lincolnshire countryside onto the Grantham to Nottingham Canal towpath for nearly 3 miles to Woolsthorpe by Belvoir, taking in a couple of testing hills along the way before returning back into the stadium for a ‘grandstand’ finish.


Each year we plan to improve the running experience, in 2010  we gave all the finishers of the Half Marathon a technical T-Shirt and in 2011 we introduced chip timing.


We have plenty of onsite parking, refreshments, Lincolnshire Runner stall, bar and we are giving each half marathon finisher a technical T shirt and a goody bag.

Some of the comments taken from the runners who took part in 2013:



Back, for the second time and, again, absolutely everything was great about this half-marathon, apart from the frrrreezing conditions ......If you've never run this one, you won't regret it!


Your race is top of the list as it’s a challenging event and really well organised.

I thought that the day was superbly organised and the marshalls were teriffic - how they managed to stay so helpful and cheerful on such a cold day is amazing.
