Message from Uncle Fez:
Is at Thornhurst Manor on Friday 27th (last Friday of January). 1900 for 1930 start.
If you have /not/ already given Uncle Mick your names/numbers then you need to do so by end of next week as we have to advise place of numbers.
If you’re struggling to see Uncle Mick, then let me know but I won’t be at club much next couple of weeks so its better to tell him direct.
Race full! (There’s actually two entries left but they’ll be gone a in a few minutes). Sorry if you’ve missed out but BookItZone do operate a waiting list so it may be worth a try. In the next couple of days everyone will receive an email for race day instructions and a copy of the number allocations. Remember start time is 1000 this year and HQ open from 0830.
UPDATE: Forgot to mention there will be NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY and race limit is set at 600. For the past 8 years we’ve had about 510 finishers so the limit of 600 should not be an issue.
A little later than normal but please find on-line entries available in this link: BookItZone
As always, race is first Sunday in March which is the 5th this year – however we have pulled forward the start time by one hour to 10:00 and we have reluctantly but after careful consideration dropped the fun run.

Chip timing is new for this race (the same system we used for the Askern 10mile) but it will still be number and chip collection on the day. We will publish the number allocation ahead and have info boards available on the day to speed up collection by number blocks.
Look forward to seeing you.
Meet at Royal 1030 for 1100 start. There’s a twist this year with extra prize for being closest to your own predicted time. Draw for VLM rejects to follow.
1915 at the Coronation Club. (We did mention last week having the follow up two week’s later).
Amber needs your food order by Sunday 20th latest to submit to the restaurant. We have 65 at the meal so pre ordering is essential… Please get it to her, she can’t be chasing everyone…
Norton club. 1915.
Its that complicated it requires its own post.
Is on… The race is already full but we have a block booking of 30 places, please let me know if you are definitely wanting a place to run (beyond breaking an arm or leg in the meantime, it can happen…). If so I need: Name DOB (realistic) T-Shirt UKA number if you have it (otherwise I have to dig out). If you entered 2015 I have these details already so just let me know you want a place.
For food we are going to Ye Olde Bell @ Barnby Moor. Menu and deposit info to follow but as the Xmas menu is 3 courses @ £35 the club is contributing £10 to the food too.
Update – sample menu here: Sample Menu. Amber is taking orders and needs numbers by the end of the month…
Update again – 30 of 30 numbers allocated. Right now there isn’t anyone formally waiting on a number but if you cannot run for any reason you can check with me if someone is waiting. If so we’ll /try/ and see if we can transfer. If not you owe the club the entry fee!
They’ve actually been up a couple of hours and available here: http://www.ukresults.net/2016/askern10.html
Thanks to John Schofield and family for providing chip timing. This was our first foray into this and some lessons to be learnt but this was why we trialled it in our longest and least busy race.
Apologies re the missing clubs on some of the online entries. Hopefully we were able to make the corrections taken at chip pick up. Ultimately it only affects the team prize but obviously there’s an expectation that participants details are correct.
And finally thanks to all the marshals who give their time unconditionally to allow this long standing race to continue without whom it simply wouldn’t exist.
