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…
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:
