2016 is the 11th edition Grantham AC’s annual ‘road’ race, the Newton’s Fraction, an accurately measured 13.1 mile race ,run under UKA rules that starts and finishes on the track inside the South Kesteven Sports Stadium,Trent Road Grantham.         

The race 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.



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

This is what you said in 2015:


... Well organised, superb atmosphere, nice course and good facilities. Well worth the trip down from West Yorkshire!


............. thanks to everyone in your dedicated and enthusiastic team? Everyone around the course was very supportive and motivating, doing their job with a smile on their face. Makes it all so worthwhile.


It was my first half marathon in preparation for the London full marathon next month (god knows how I am going to manage that one!) and although I found it tough (that last hill was a killer!) I did really enjoy it.

I thought the organisation by everyone involved, the location, course route, facilities at the stadium, goodie bag etc and the relatively small number of runners made it fantastic experience to be part of – far better than the Lincoln 10k put it that way! Keep up the good work.


....well done for hosting a really good running event.  Such a well organised race from the regular emails right through to the event itself and it was a joy to be part of - even the big hills made me smile............once i was running down the other side.................This will definitely be on my calendar for next year.
