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.

Information Sharing

Hello all, we are looking at the best way of reaching members with information and updates regarding events.

Whilst we have this website as a sort of message board, we could do with ensuring the noticeboard at the club is kept up to date etc.

I was wondering if all ADRC members had an active email account ?

if you do can you email me on

steveleyland77@gmail.com

I will then look to possibly circulate information via email and this webpage, if anyone needs something putting on website you can let me know or we can looking at sharing some access across a few members .

Spread the word.

 

 

Dave Bullock’s Funeral

We have been asked to post here that Dave’s funeral is Friday 19th at 11.00am, Rose Hill Crematorium, Cantley.

Donations are to Doncaster Royal Infirmary Ward 32 and St Johns Hospice, Tickhill Road both of whom cared and looked after Dave these past 4 years and where he made many friends.

I will update further when we know.

Dave Bullock

Its with deep sadness to let you know that Dave passed away Tuesday night after his long battle with illness. I don’t think its an overstatement to say he was an immense part and influence on our club and was dearly loved by all who met him – he always had a story to tell and chocolate to share.

I’m sure I speak for all of us in saying we miss him greatly and he will always be fondly remembered. Our hearts go out to Jane, Jessica and Lee.

Middelkerke – Update

Despite being previously told by the organisers the Middelkerke races are 21st August this year (their rule is 3rd Sunday in August, our 10 miler is 2nd Sunday in August) we have now had confirmation they have had to move their race to the 14th due to a clash with another festival.

This unfortunately clashes with our Askern 10mile and means its highly likely we won’t be doing the usual Middelkerke trip.

Suggestions are invited for an alternative and whilst there aren’t explicit set criteria my understanding of broad requirements are:

  • suitable races to give most people the opporuntity to run (Middelkerke had 5km through 20km over the years, recently a 5km, 8km and 16km)
  • within two hours of the Chunnel if coaching to the continent
  • hotel large enough to house us all (20ish rooms?)
  • restaurants again large enough to house big groups
  • school holidays

Fez had a great suggestion, we could go on our regular dates regardless and organise a handicap / time trial ourselves! I like how he thinks…
