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

Paul C, (El Capitano)

Big congratulations to all the category winners but particularly first male, Iraitz Arrospide and first lady, Faye Banks, who both won their gender by 4 clear minutes in incredible times.

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

We hope you all enjoyed the race.

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.

2017 Askern 10km Entries Open

The race is being held on Wednesday 17th May @ 19:00

UPDATE: Race Full. Sorry if you have missed out. We do operate a waiting list for on-line entries via BookItZone. You can sign up and then be emailed if a place becomes available.

We know we have been pretty quiet about the Askern 10km this year. We have faced a number of challenges with the latest curve ball being we may have lost our parking at Race HQ due to building works. We now know this is unlikely to start prior to the race so we have decided to put this race on for one last time in its current guise.

We have also previously reduced the entry limit last year in response to it being overwhelmingly popular in the recent years. We are further limiting the entries again this year to 600 with no on the day but we expect to sell out prior to that.

So please enter early on the following link: https://bookitzone.com/phil_tordoff_1/tb2FFX

Postal entry form here, but please bear in mind how quickly the event is filling up (75% in 3 days) that online is the quickest way to confirm your entry2017 Askern 10km Entry Form (v1)

Thanks for your patience and good luck,

2017 Norton 9 Results

All, quick post  (as not near laptop) but here are the results from today’s race: http://www.ukresults.net/2017/norton9.html

As always, hope the runners enjoyed it and thanks to all the marshals and ADRC members who put the hours in behind the scenes to ensure the continuing success of this race.

Obviously the car park issues were less than ideal as the weather over the last couple of days had beat us but we got everyone out in the end.

Will post fuller over the next couple of days.

Phil.

Norton 9 Marshals

First Sunday of March is looming, 5th this year; as always marshals are required and all help is appreciated. It is these events that allow our club to operate at almost zero cost (for the second year running) to its members.

It is an earlier meet of 0830 at the school as the race starts at 1000. Fez is coordinating marshals and will be trying to allocate points to people with instructions ahead of the day but please turn up promptly to the school. We’re undergoing a few changes to the race this year so more people around the better.

Thanks in advance.
