Bradgate House (16th century)
Edward Grey’s son Sir John Grey of Groby married Elizabeth Woodville, who after John’s death married King Edward IV. Their son Thomas Grey, 1st Marquess of Dorset prepared for building Bradgate House in the late fifteenth century but died before he was able to begin. It was his son Thomas Grey, 2nd marquis of Dorset who built Bradgate House, the likely completion date being 1520.

We are moving house on Friday so I was starting to pack a few things up and found a couple of shoe boxes under the bed with my running medals in. Unfortunately I cannot find my framed lace panels from the Nottingham marathon, 2 were signed on the back by Ian Thompson, one of my running inspirations.

Here are a few of them that bring back memories, especially as some of the races are no longer around.

The Barrow festival 10 miles, great course, a bit hilly, got my first sub 1 hour there (57:59).

3 London Marathons (1989, 1991 &2015)

The first Luton international marathon 1990 (2:48:59) where I finished in 19th place.

2 County medals, 10000m Silver and  3000m steeplechase bronze.

Charnwood A.C. Road running champion, Clubman of the year and athlete of the year plus club championship gold in 2000m steeplechase

Half a dozen from the ‘old’ Loughborough 1/2 marathon and a couple from the new 1/2 marathon.

Torbay 1/2 marathon 2011, 2nd V55.

Robert Bakewell  2.5 mile race 1st place.

LRRL summer league V55 2nd place.

And many more. 🙂
