Darren wrote “Thank you to everyone for your kind words of encouragement. I tried my best (although knowing it was going to be difficult after a 3 day stomach bug!!!). All went well and then the cramps took over & could barely run 200m in the last 5 km. but I made it and so pleased I did” Darren finished with a time of 3:25:40 which is a great time considering he was unwell.

The track repairs are scheduled to start on Tuesday 7th May, the
whole site will be power-washed and significant parts of the track and red
areas re-sprayed. The work should be completed within four days, however it is
dependent upon dry weather and low winds. So far the long range forecast is
good but if work is delayed they will work over the weekend 11th and 12th May.
THEREFORE AT THIS STAGE THE SITE WILL BE CLOSED
TO EVERYONE FROM TUESDAY 7TH MAY TO SUNDAY 12TH MAY TO RE-OPEN MONDAY 13TH MAY.
Herringthorpe Track at Rotherham has been booked from 6pm to 8pm
on Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th May, for our use paid for by the Club.
This message will be posted onto the club facebook site. An
additional lock will be placed on the gate near the bins. Please honor this
request as plant machinery will be in use across the site.
