In full: I used this as preparation for London Marathon 2011. The two hills were a killer. My legs are still aching. Great scenery along the canal. And here's me thinking I was good on hills..........not that steep though. Well done to the organisers. Date of review: March 23, 2011
In short: Well done by all involed In full: This is a great well organised run.Everyone involved are everythig anyone could wish for. Maybe they could cut a little bit off the top of the hill at 10miles. This is the first time I have run this 1/2 but hope to do again. Date of review: March 21, 2011
In short: Best half marathon I've ever run! In full: This race was brilliant right from the off. Well organised, a splendid route (loved the canal, and even the two brutal hills!) and excellent value for money. It was well marked, with friendly marshals and supporters all the way round. The goody bag at the end was brilliant, and the t-shirt is one that will definitely be used! I will definitely run this one again next year and would recommend others too - brilliant!

In short: Brilliant event! In full: Grantham AC & everyone associated with this race deserve huge congratulations for organising such a brilliant event at a fraction of the price of otherraces like the Reading held today as well.
This was my first "Fraction" but will definitely not be my last. Great event that couldn't be improved on. Top Marks Grantham AC! Date of review: March 20, 2011
In short: Great race ! In full: My first time at the Newton Fraction and I will definitely be back for more in 2012. Superbly organised, with a small friendly feel. Nice route with a couple of proper hills, the one at 10-11 miles really got the heart beating. A big PB for me topped off a great day. Date of review: March 20, 2011
In short: This event has moved on over the last few years and is turning into a top local half marathon. In full: Well done to organisors, marshalls and anybody else involved.I had a good day at Grantham today and you are all doing better and better each year on what is already a fine race. So much better than mass city half marathons, a real runners race. well done. Date of review: March 20, 2011
In short: Tough hills, lovely course In full: The 2 hills are killers, and I am from Yorkshire! I walked the 2nd half of the 2nd hill, hardly lost any ground, no one passed me, and I shot past a few people when I started running again at the top! I also got a PB. I expect this to be a tougher course than I get at London in a few weeks for the marathon, so a very good warm up run for that. Excellent organisation, can highly recommend!!
