    through the grade

    The day began amid a Glasgow gloom, with the marathon, that test of stamina on the streets. The slippery conditions didn't help, but the sizeable crowds did and through the grade charged the green and gold, Australia's Michael Shelley winning the men's race while the women’s went to Kenya’s Daniel.


    The above is news script.

    I don't know what "grade" means in the underlined part.

    Thanks!

    Jason

    Re: through the grade

    I believe "the grade" refers to the steepness of the course.
