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…
Another successful running of the Norton 9 saw over 500 runners complete the course in ideal conditions. Congratulations to Pumlani Bengani of Salford Harriers who was the overall winner in a time of 48:50 and Julie Briscoe of Wakefield Harriers in a time of 52:24 and 11th overall.
The highest placed Askern runner was 17th, Paul Collingwood in a time of 52:29 – races like this can only be put on by the voluntary help of club runners so many Askern runners aren’t able to compete on the day. Occasionally we let other runners win…
Many thanks to all entrants and hope to see you next year.
Further update again! So, still meet as below but soup is confirmed at School Boy, around 1230 I think. Just go with the flow I think…
Further update: meet at the club’s changing rooms 1030 for an 1100 start.
Update already: There’s now uncertainty over the School Boy! Check back when we’ve found somewhere, possibly even our changing rooms in the meeting side. (Don’t worry, there’ll be alcohol somewhere).
The date for the Xmas Handicap is confirmed as Saturday 29th December.
We’ve changed the meeting location to the School Boy pub (some uncertainty over the Royal Hotel at the moment). As always, we need people to turn up early so assign a start slot. I believe the first runner goes off at 1100 so please be there between 1015 and 1030.
Its unlikely I’ll be up at the club by then so if you could share it around….
Couple of thoughts for next year – we’re not fixed on Edwinstowe (although its good in many ways) and if we’re slightly flexible on being late November rather than early December we’ll have more options. Here’s a couple:
Date is (as always) the first Sunday in March, this year it falls on 3rd March. Prices haven’t increased so as always its extremely good value. We have increased the entry on the day fee (£1 to £2) so please pre-enter to save money and be eligible for prizes.
