College staff member completes gruelling London Marathon

Sarah High felt the effects following demanding race but completes in great time

One of Grantham College’s determined members of staff competed in Sunday’s London Marathon.

Student Services Manager, Sarah High, finished with a commendable time of 4 hours 11minutes in the race.

As a member of Grantham Running Club, Sarah decided to give the London race a go after previously competing in other marathons.

She said: “I ran a good time at Manchester Marathon, so that gave me the opportunity to apply for London.
“It was an opportunity not to be missed.”

Following the race Sarah returned to work the next day, but stressed that her efforts had taken their toll.

Well done, Sarah! We are so proud to have such a motivated staff member working here at the college and we hope that you inspire many others to get their trainers on!
