Please see below results, Leyland hit his sub 40 target by over 6 mins. (The course was 4.2 due to a navigation error at the front and many sheep at the rear following )…..
By ‘eck it wa’ tough!
Sorry for the delay…..
The original venue for race 1 (penistone ) is still under snow……….
Race 1 10th April Lodge Moor, Sheffield Start 19.00 hours
Race HQ Three Merry Lads Sat Nav info S10 4LJ
This is a new venue and course. From Sheffield take the A57 (Glossop) which goes past Sheffield University and Weston Park Hospital. Continue on the A57 to the Crosspool area and turn left into Sandygate Road just past a petrol station. It is sign posted Hallam F.C. Carry on for two miles and park on the road side beyond the bus turning circle as far as the Sportsman pub on the left. There is parking in the car park for the playing fields just past the Sportsman but we may use this for the finish. If you park there you will not be able to get out until the last runner has finished. The start is at the Three Merry Lads a little further up the road. Do not block gates or driveways. The car park at the Three Merry lads can be used if you are staying for a drink of food. Toilets are in the pub. Please respect other pub users. The course is rather hilly and rural so definitely NO earphones.
Please find attached results.
- Wayne Martison – 37.11
- Steve Barber 39.57 (1 second off his PB )
- Wendy Smith 58.27
- Jen Barber 58.50
Brian, Susie, Dennis and Steve turned out for this one. It’s a flat course with a couple of lumps but something makes it hard going, maybe the tough last 4 miles where nothing gets any closer on the long, straight, old railway path……….and it is 20 miles! the unremarkable finish on the path at side of the road doesn’t help with the sense of achievement either, most finished at the clock only to be told to go the extra 5 yards to the umbrella covered ‘finish’ line across path……
Susie Warris 2:43:32 (PB)
Steve Leyland 2:57:54 (PB)
Dennis White 3:19:49 (PB)
Brian Watts 3:22:04 (Unwell)
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…

- Joe Restell – 1:29:48
- Stan Willians – 1:29:48
- Duncan Marlow – 1:35:56
- Amber Torrington – 1:41:30

This came into the inbox:
The Retford Half Marathon and Fun Run is organised by East Retford Rugby Club in association with Retford Athletic Club. The 2013 event will be held on Sunday March 10th.
Injury and availability stopped us entering a complete team in both male and female categories, although we over compensated in the ‘faulty’ category… Leyland headed for Flamingo Land, Collo shopped for ‘jams and preserves’…
A challenging, but strangely enjoyable course, with an Olympian present, Jonny Brownlee……
Results below, click link then Yorkshire Men/Ladies etc……..they’re tabbed at top.
I think I left my marathon in this race last year…..ha ha, but as Edinburgh is end of May I’ll have another go….and for those who know what they’re doing it’s still great for London.
the link to the application form on the below page is not very reliable so I entered through John Schofield online.
if enough enter we could travel together so make it known you’re doing it……..carbon footprint people, have a conscience!!
