Pre-Christmas Christmas Do.

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.

Dave Bullock Memorial Relay

Invitation to all ADRC members.

On Tuesday 19th September, ADRC are going to trial a little event in the memory of our dear friend Dave Bullock. This is a fabulous suggestion from Kathie Wordsworth.

We are going to do a relay around the Norton 9 course, as this was one of Dave’s favourite races.

The intention is to have a short leg at either end of the relay (3 person team), so as to encompass everyone who wishes to have a trot.

Teams will be allocated on the night.

Leg lengths will be roughly 1.5 miles, 6 miles, and 1.5 miles to finish.

We will sort getting the middle leg runners to and from their leg if they wish.

Due to the late nights drawing in, please meet at the changing rooms at 6pm, for 6.30pm start. Should the event go ok, we will bring the date forward next year.

As Dave was an avid Leeds United fan, I feel it would be appropriate for everyone to wear blue, white and yellow (all 3 colours please), somewhere within their running kit. Ie, blue trainers, white socks, yellow top, something along those lines.

There will be a little something for all of us that attend on the night (I bet you can’t guess what).

I also think that it would be great if we all made a donation to a charitable cause on the night. I will be suggesting that ADRC match any monies raised on the evening.

Please note that this is intended be a fun night of running, as Dave always loved it when the club had a bit of a get together.

I’m sure also that once the running and showering is done, then it would be nice to raise a glass (or two) to Dave, afterwards at Norton Club.

Hope to see you there, whether it is as a runner, spectator or a helper.

Best Wishes

Thanks as always to St Johns, Askern Miners Welfare, supporters, runners and the officials and marshals who without these races couldn’t go ahead.

2017 Askern 10km Results

Are here: 2017 Askern 10km Results

As usual, but no less diminished because it is year after year, a huge thanks to local running clubs, supporters, marshals, race organisers, the Welfare and the wider Askern area who make this race a success. The weather wasn’t so kind this year but we hope it didn’t dampen things.

Many of you know this /may/ be the last time this race is on in it’s current guise due to a couple of organisational challenges. Nothing is final though so we’ll let you know in due course.

Its pretty likely the Askern 10mile will go ahead too so we’ll starting making preparations for that ASAP.

Regards, ADRC.
