2018 Norton 9 Mile Results

Told you to wear sunscreen…

Big congratulations to local runners Peter Badger and Faye Banks winning, along with all the other category winners and placers – and to be honest, all who turned out on such a hot day. We appreciate all who attended as well as the support from marshals and Run Direct – we wanted to keep the three-decade continuous run of this race going and we managed it.

The Askern 10 Mile (12 August) will be open tonight.

Thanks all, ADRC

2018 Norton 9 Number (Rescheduled) Allocation & Race Day Instructions

Please find links to:

Collect number on the day (no chip for this one time); HQ open from 08.30 am – race start at 10.00am. Leave plenty of time…

Parking opposite Norton Middle School courtesy of Norton Strawberry Growers (sat nav: DN6 9DG). Do not park on West End Road as this forms part of the course.

Also, the start has changed to the main road from the side street so we will be congregating runners in the park and walking down just ahead of the race. Please follow the marshal’s instructions.

Other than that, as Baz Luhrmann once said, wear sunscreen


2018 Norton 9 – now rescheduled to 1st July, entries are open.

Update: we are accepting entries on the day up to our race limit of 600. Entries on the day will still incur a £2 surcharge (UKA rules) so its better to enter on-line up to the day before.

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!

2018 Norton 9 – Rescheduled

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.

ADRC Committee.
