Race Website


The Brooks Newton's Fraction has been the annual race of Grantham AC for many years. The club organised several distances before settling on the popular half marathon back in 2006. The race is a credit to the running club and is considered by many runners to be one of the best in the country. There is also the Little Apple fun run which is 3k to keep the kids entertained (at least for a short time).

The Course

The one lap figure of 8 route both starts and finishes in the South Kesterven Sports Stadium. Heading out of Grantham runners soon get into the Lincolnshire countryside before running along the Grantham to Nottingham Canal towpath for 3 miles to Woolsthorpe. There are a couple of challenging hills to overcome (especially the one at around the 10 mile mark) before a superb grandstand finish.
