Michael Wakefield Relay – 9 November 2019

Well done to Mark Webster for organising this new event, from an idea a couple of months ago to delivering a race which around 260 runners took part in a relay event where the runners ran in pairs of 6 male / 6 female runners per team of 12. Each pair ran 2 miles before handing over to the next pair.

The event was to bring together running clubs in Doncaster (and beyond) for an afternoon of racing, and the proceeds of which were given to two local charities. The event was supported by Doncaster AC, Fitwins, Meters to Miles and Ben Elliott. Access to the venue and pavilion were organised by Doncaster Council.

The event was dedicated to Michael Wakefield and he would have been delighted to see this event take place

Doncaster AC had around 60 runners taking part and we also had helpers marshaling on the course along with some of our friends. We hope all the clubs enjoyed the event and we look forward to seeing you all back next year.

The team results follow and we were delighted to take 1st and 3rd overall as well as several age group prizes. Well done to Julie Cull and Glynn Jones for sorting the DAC teams.
