Is on… The race is already full but we have a block booking of 30 places, please let me know if you are definitely wanting a place to run (beyond breaking an arm or leg in the meantime, it can happen…).
If so I need:
UKA number if you have it (otherwise I have to dig out).
If you entered 2015 I have these details already so just let me know you want a place.
For food we are going to Ye Olde Bell @ Barnby Moor. Menu and deposit info to follow but as the Xmas menu is 3 courses @ £35 the club is contributing £10 to the food too.
Update – sample menu here: Sample Menu. Amber is taking orders and needs numbers by the end of the month…
Update again – 30 of 30 numbers allocated. Right now there isn’t anyone formally waiting on a number but if you cannot run for any reason you can check with me if someone is waiting. If so we’ll /try/ and see if we can transfer. If not you owe the club the entry fee!
They’ve actually been up a couple of hours and available here: http://www.ukresults.net/2016/askern10.html
Thanks to John Schofield and family for providing chip timing. This was our first foray into this and some lessons to be learnt but this was why we trialled it in our longest and least busy race.
Apologies re the missing clubs on some of the online entries. Hopefully we were able to make the corrections taken at chip pick up. Ultimately it only affects the team prize but obviously there’s an expectation that participants details are correct.
And finally thanks to all the marshals who give their time unconditionally to allow this long standing race to continue without whom it simply wouldn’t exist.
Thanks for all those who have pre-entered.
As you know we are changing to chip timing this year and it is collect both number and returnable chip on the day. If you entered via post you should have already received confirmation with your number written on, if online shortly you should receive an email confirming.
It’d be most helpful if you ask for your number/chip by number as that’ll help us be speedy – we can do it by name but will require looking up first.

Hope the weather is kind Sunday for you…

New for this race, we are using chip timing. As a result numbers and chips are to be collected on race day rather than being posted out as we usually do. We will be collecting the reusable chips at the finishing funnel.
Frequently asked questions:
- we do allow entries on the day however do charge an additional £2, please enter before the day; it helps both us and you
- pre-entry prices are £8 for UKA and £10 for unaffiliated
- DN6 0AJ to get to the car parking/race HQ
- race starts at 1030
- unfortunately we can’t transfer unused entries to next years event and/or other races. However, tell us in time and we can transfer to a club mate/friend.
- as above, we are doing chip timing. We are using reusable chips than need to be collected (with your race number) and returned on the day.
- its always sunny on the day (honest)
- we don’t have showers or dedicated changing facilities

Thanks to all runners and marshals who endured the downpour.
There were a few items of clothing left over on the night if anybody left anything behind.
Could also do with tracking down a runner, Kim Brown. He was an on-the-night transfer but didn’t leave contact details. There’s a prize with his name on.
The Annual General Meeting is after the Time Trial on Thursday (it’s usually the TT in April).
Hopefully there’ll still be beer and chips as usual for a TT!
Note: We are not taking entries on the day, ONLY pre-entries for 2016. Entries will close 11th May or sooner if the 700 race limit is reached.
UPDATE 27th April: We are FULL. Sorry you have missed your place in Askern 10km 2016. Again we will not be accepting entries on the day.
We had over 300 on the night in 2015 and as as a result had to delay the race which is unsatisfactory for everyone. We hope you understand. The benefit is pre-entries are cheaper!
First draft of results are here: 2016 Norton 9 Mile Results
Update: 2016 Norton 9 Mile Results (v4)
There were quite a few occurrences with runners going through the funnel more than once and other runners not showing their numbers so its likely some amendments will be made.
Thanks to all who ran and to the marshals and race officials, with whom none of this would happen.
There was a little confusion and uncertainty around Middelkerke as the dates of their races moved after initially confirming them with us. The decision has been taken that the regular trip on the regular weekend (week after our 10 mile) is on, despite there being no race that weekend. We will sort something be it, club v club, handicap or simply no running!
Bus is booked, hotel is booked. See Dave Collo for places.
Dates are Saturday 20th August to Tuesday 23rd.
