Pat O’Grady’s Funeral Arrangements

Just to let people know Pat O’Grady’s funeral will be at Rose Hill Crematorium Friday 28th August at 12.20pm and afterwards at Askern Welfare.

Family flowers only and donations will be gratefully received for Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Pat gave a lot to the local running community, putting on 3 ‘races’ a year for 20+ years. He’ll be missed by all at ADRC but many happy memories remain.

2015 Askern 10mile Results

Another strong field on a decent day for running (if a little muggy) saw Carl Ryde lead from the front to the end. 462 finishers in total, a 40% increase on last year. Simon Wright in 3rd made sure the local talent was represented… Helen Cross from Pocklington led the ladies field.

Results: 2015 Askern 10 Mile Results (Preliminary)

As always, thanks to the marshals, St Johns, race adjudicators and Askern administrators who all volunteer their time to put this race on. There’s not many races you can enter for under a pound a mile!

Next race, Norton 9, which is provisionally set at Sunday 6th March 2016. Hopefully see you there!

Edwinstowe Christmas 10K Forest Trail Race – 6th Dec 2015

Its that time of year (mid August) when we need to be thinking about Christmas. Edwinstowe is back on again his year, the club will pay both the coach and entry fees (its feeling festive).

We will do a block booking for entries, which if you can send to me I will collate. Likely need DOB and T-Shirt size. Will discuss food at a later date.

2015 Askern 10km Provisional Results

Update 1: There was a (pretty) glitch with the on-line published results. Its was rectified 30mins after the first results were posted. Apologies.

Update 2: A brilliant effort by Martin James of Doncaster AC, free race photos for all! Thanks Martin… Race Photos

Incredible amount of runners tonight, nearly 800 finishers with 300 entering on the night. Whilst we hugely appreciate the fabulous attendance of this race it will help you and us in the future to pre-enter – its also cheaper for you!

As a result of the high volume, unfortunately the race had to be pushed back 15 minutes which we hope wasn’t too much of an inconvenience. The peak of runners entering at 1830 was too much to guarantee being processed before 1900. As it turns out we were just about done with a minute to go but to be fair to all we had to make the call earlier…

Anyway, you’re probably only here for the results so here they are: 2015 Askern 10km Results v5

Well done to all the winners of categories and teams, but also well done to all for putting yourself on the line tonight instead of watching Corro/Emmerdale/Eastenders…

Thank you to all, marshals, organisers, hosts and runners. This was the 30th running of this event, let’s hope for 30 more…


Goodbye Goodair -16th May 1800hrs

16/5/15, 6pm at the Old Moor Tavern, Broomhill.

ADRC are cordially invited to go share a beer with a Andy. Following recent election results and a fondness for Jimmy Kranky, he is heading north to Scotland a little sooner than was originally planned.
In hardcore Goodair style (and getting into the Scottish ways) it will be drinks only…………..feel free to sneak some peanuts between drinks, but don’t let him see you !!!!

Askern 10km Marshalls

All, as always we need marshals to put our races on. The 10km is the most difficult of these so please be aware we can’t be short on the night at the expense of running.

Fez is organising and he needs to know availability ahead of the night so he can do his plan. There’s a list at the club but if you’re able to marshall but unlikely to get to the club by all means let me know somehow and I can relay to him.

On the night setup will start from 1700h, race 1900h.

Thanks, Phil.

Manchester Marathon by Tubs Leyland

Manchester Marathon – not so much a secret, more a ‘prevention of people worrying about the fat lad until the very last minute’. Having failed in the club ballot for London, my intention was to concentrate on running miles early in the year and see where I was by Spring. I generally average 100 mile months, although do dip as low as 60/70 where I increase bike and swim. I thought if I could tick over the miles, throw in a long run and see how I felt as the date approached, I could always drop out and nobody would ever know. Having said that, I may be many things, but I’m not really a drop out, it’s not in my nature.
