Update: Course Certificate and Race License received!
Firstly, apologies for the delay. We’ve had quite some delay trying to get the course measurement certificate updated (this is required every 10 years) but hopefully we’ll get it resolved shortly. Its important to note we haven’t applied for our race license until the course measurement is resolved but that’s just a formality. The relevant bodies have been informed etc and the date is in their diaries, we’ve just been advised to get the license after the measurement is renewed.
Online entry is at Book It Zone here: 2018 Norton 9 Online Entry
Postal form here: 2018 Norton 9 Entry Form v3
- no entries on the day (the race hits its quota ahead of that usually anyway)
- transfers are permitted within reason, we have to call a deadline close to the race as the chips have to be programmed etc.
- collect number and chip on the day
Stan W has put forward a night out, where the general consensus is an Indian @ Aagrah, Adwick.
Could you let him know by Tuesday if you’d like to do, there’s quite some interest already so I think its happening and he’s just trying to finalise numbers.
Usual, 7.15pm @ Coronation Club. Main topic Norton 9.
Be there or be square/at home/in another pub.
A break with the norm, the date has been set for Saturday 20th January, the venue Norton Coronation Club.
Tickets are the same at £5 / £7 / £2 for Members, Non-Members, Children.
Not sure who’s taking the names, I’ll suss that out shortly.
Here’s the following pickup times for Percy Pud this Sunday, race starts at 0930 so be ready to run when bus dumps us on the start line.

He seems to have about four a year but its an excuse for a drink anyway; so drinks after running club on Tuesday.

Good morning all,
For any that are interested the entries for the Snake Lane 10 open this Saturday morning at 10am. This is a very popular race usually selling out in a couple of hours. This is a great race put on by Pocklington Runners and entry is via www.sportsentrysolutions.com
The date of the race is Sunday 25th February 10am start.
Hope to see some of you there.
Yup, I’m bringing up Christmas already.
I may seriously regret this but we’re mixing it up the year and doing a different race, the Percy Pud (www.steelcitystriders.co.uk/percy-pud-10k/). The complexity comes that is is a /very/ popular race and sells out in a couple of hours.
I’ve contacted the organisers and they’ve said for everyone to enter normally and if anyone misses out they’ll see what they can do.
So this requires a little effort from those who want to run to either enter when it opens up (5pm on Sunday 1st October 2017). I will be posting many reminders and the link before time. If you think you’re unable to book yourself buddy up with someone who can (and that doesn’t mean I’ll have 30 buddies! I’m actually travelling at that time).
Obviously, we’ll find a nice place to eat too and likely organise a coach. Of course, if someone wants to step up and take on one or both of these roles feel free!
The Sunday is the usual for our pre-Xmas Xmas Do, first Sunday of December.
And remember, an ADRC vest is for life, not just for Christmas.
