Rescheduled Date: Sunday 1st July @ 10am
Online entries: 2018 Norton 9 Rescheduled
We managed to find a slot in the local race calendar and have re-arranged the Norton 9 to 1st July. As we refunded everyone their race entry fee for the cancelled March running its on people to re-enter for the July running if they wish.
Everything else is pretty much the same about the race, race starts at 10am and HQ is at Norton Junior School (DN6 9DG). Unfortunately our chip-timers are already maxed out and rather than go for another provider with the complications that could bring we’ll revert for a one-off to the manual timing we always used to do. Don’t worry – it does still work!
Invitation to all ADRC members.
This year we are changing the date and format from the Norton 9 relay of last year to make it more inclusive and viable, we felt last year that runners waiting or finished were isolated until we regrouped in the pub….
The date this year is three weeks today, Tuesday 3rd July (it was always intended to move it towards lighter nights in summer) and we are thinking a team of 3 x 2.2mile legs through Campsall Park.
I’ll put more info on when available but this year the theme will be to wear something green, the closer to the Freddo green you can achieve the better… This is intended be a fun night of running, as Dave always loved it when the club had a bit of a get together.
Hope to see you there, whether it is as a runner, spectator or a helper.
Miss you Dave.
If anybody’s interested let Paul Collo know.
It is a great race, apart from the uphills (and for me, downhills), but other than that a really nice event. Be good to get a decent club showing out, particularly for those new to the club..

….a whole £20. Dave Collo is membership sec. (Which is code for don’t give me the money)
However, the club owes all Percy Pudders who ran and entered under their own steam £20. So £20 = £20. I’ll provide Dave Collo a list of those this applies to.
Subject says it all! Apart from the agenda…. No doubt 10km.
Update: Our sponsor Sentry Doors (link) has generously increased the course record bonus (male and female) to £500!, so if you anybody who is a quick runner, get them to enter!

Brief post as someone was asking. Fixtures below. Numbers arrived today and are now with Dave Collo and will be taken to club on Tuesday, so if you’re running Wednesday make arrangements at the club. I will not be there.
The dates and venues are:-
28th March – Brodsworth –– 6:45 start.
11th April – Lodge Moor – 7pm start
25th April – Worsborough 7pm start
9th May – Penistone 7pm start
We’ve selected a date for the rescheduled Norton 9, Sunday 1st July. Our primary criteria was not to tread on other local(ish) races toes – we know its important for clubs to maintain healthy races and equally runners have their regular races.
In the next few days, we’ll open the entries for the Askern 10km (Wednesday 16th May) and once that’s mostly in hand we’ll start the Norton 9 process. We will try to email everybody who entered for the March race so they get good notice.
