Thanks to everyone for entering and the marshals / administrators who enable this race to be run cheaply for the benefit of all.
Conditions were a little tricky but hopefully not too bad. The overall race winner entered on the day so wasn’t eligible for a prize! Always try to pre-enter to save yourself time and £2 on the day.
Hopefully see you all next year.
As per the title, Norton 9 on-line entries are closing one day early due to logistics, so please enter before 22nd Feb. Thanks.

Race report to follow…
We have been notified of a large abnormal load travelling from Goole Docks to Thorpe Marsh Power Station on Sunday morning.
It is scheduled to leave Goole @ 8.00 am travelling at 12mph via the M62 & A19 through Askern at around 10.30 am. This is likely to cause large tailbacks for anyone using the M62/A19 route to the Askern 10M race.
Please either set off early or use the A1 leaving at the A639 Pontefract junction, following the signs to Askern, via Campsall & Sutton. It also may be necessary to delay the start of the race depending on the progress of the offending convoy. We will do our best to ensure that we keep any disruption to a minimum but please appreciate that things our very much out of our hands.
Find here (Askern 10 Mile 2013 Entry Form) the form for this year’s Askern 10m.
Online entry available HERE
Note its back to its original date of 2nd Sunday of August (it was moved last year, for one year only, due to the Olympics).
On-line entries open soon.
Can all ADRC runners please be aware we must fulfil our Marshalling positions, safety on the course is paramount. If you would like to run please bring someone along with you who can Marshall but there should be no expectation that you can automatically run. Every effort will be made to accommodate those wanting to run.

Great turnout again, 517 finishers in reasonable weather (given the weather yesterday and earlier today, we got away with it). Good times at the top end (although the winner entered on the day and wasn’t eligible for a prize) and we also had a M70 in under 42 minutes!

It was busy on the night too with a 191 entries. We’d always encourage people to pre-enter (although appreciate its not always certain) as its both cheaper and less stressful for you (and us!).
Hope everyone enjoyed the event and a reminder the Askern 10mile is only 12 weeks away…
Some impressive performances (PBs all round I think??? Correct me if I’m wrong) from ADRC runners this weekend in the Retford Half – think the weather caught some of them out (Steve B!) so given the Arctic conditions even more impressive…
- Steve Barber – 1:28:41
- Joe Restell – 1:29:48
- Stan Willians – 1:29:48
- Duncan Marlow – 1:35:56
