Here are some of the comments runners made on Runner’s World and our Fraction Facebook page. There are plenty more from over the years on the Runner’s World web site and on  Facebook:


“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.”

“Thank you everyone for a great event. Top organisation – I will definitely do it again next year.”

“Thank you for a well-organised race. Despite those evil hills, it was a really lovely route.”

“Thank you to everyone that was involved in the Newton’s Fraction before, on the day and afterwards. Well done, guys, and well organized, can you please turn down the temperature slightly next year and can you chop the hills down slightly! LOL!”

“See you again next year and hills you are not going to beat us!”

“Thank you to the organisers and volunteers. You were brilliant!”


As always a great race and the weather just made it hilarious..!

It was my first attempt at this race and despite the weather and those hills, I still managed a PB! Dread to think what I look like in the photos though! I would love to do it again next year, but can we have some sunshine please?!

Had a great time running this race, and will definitely be booking this next year, it was a great race and very well organised.

Hello. This was my first time running your race and I loved it. Weather made it more special!

The race conditions brought back memories of the MK marathon back in 2012 – dark,cloudy and wet! But the feeling when you cross the finish line always makes it worth the effort ( skin is waterproof as my friends keep telling me!).

Thanks for putting on a great race, looking forward to next year for my third time running it!

Was a great race – even if the weather did give us it in spades! Looking forwards to 2018!!


Undulating course with two challenging hills. I personally loved the event and will return next year!

I could have chosen a flat event for my first half marathon but were’s the fun in that?! Great experience, really enjoyed it.

I finally got to do this race and it certainly didn’t disappoint. A very well organised and friendly event. I found the course tough going in places but the camaraderie amongst fellow competitors and the wonderful support from marshals and the public on route got me through. I don’t do races for the goody bag at the end but I have to say the goody bag was great! Excellent value for money. Keep up the good work Grantham AC.

Excellent organisation. A varied course with road and towpath surfaces. A couple of hills to make it interesting. The marshalls and people at the drinks stations were excellent. The stadium finish was great. I’ll be back next year.

A lovely race with some lovely scenery, especially when the sun came out. Only disappointment was only no medal, after a lovely medal last year. Great organization and great support.
