Date Announcement – Newton’s Fraction 2019 takes place on Sunday, 8th September!
2019 marks the 14th Newton’s Fraction Half Marathon run under UKA rules, on an accurately measured 13.1 mile route. The race is one of the county’s most popular road races. Organised by Grantham Athletic Club, the race starts and finishes on the track inside the South Kesteven Sports Stadium, Trent Road, Grantham.
The course heads out of town into the countryside onto the Grantham to Nottingham Canal towpath for nearly 3 miles to Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir, taking in a couple of testing hills , before returning to the stadium for a grandstand finish.
We have plenty of on-site parking, refreshments, a Lincolnshire Runner stall, bar and each finisher gets a t-shirt, medal and goody bag.
“I just wanted to say what a fantastic race. The marshals were fantastic, so well organised and such great weather too! Fully appreciated the bottle of beer at the finish too. Once again, thank you for a great race.” – Tracy Parr
