*** 2Km Fun Run, Thursday 29th August Keepmoat Stadium – Race starts 6pm ***

John Mayock and Sebastian Coe, are organising 2km fun runs nationwide as part of the Olympic Legacy in encouraging more children to excercise

On Thursday 29th August we will be hosting the run in Doncaster.

The run will start in our stadium at 6pm after a brief warm up at 5.45pm. Entry is free with tee shirts for the finalists and numbers etc will be provided. Members & non-members are welcome!

The run will start with one lap of the track then out to the left at our gate passing the container and five a side, round onto the grassy hill and onto the path bordering the hill to the back fo the stadium returning to finish in our stadium, The car park outside our gate will be taped off and we will need marshalls. It will mean a slight inconvenience to training but we should be finished for 7pm.

Would all coaches encourage their athletes to take part.

We will need a few marshalls if coaches or other members are free.- please contact Kev Lincoln

Askern 10 Mile Results

333 Athletes finished the Askern 10 Mile road race this morning, conditions were good, not too warm but you could feel the wind at times.  11 DAC athletes competed with Steve leading team DAC home in his first 10 mile road race.  Dave(32) and Dave(33) with a couple of others ran 5 miles before the race, did the race and then did another 5 miles as part of Marathon Training.  I was pleased to run my years best time with Richard knocking a massive 3 minutes off his PB. Stuart had a good run with a PB. Paul was pleased and Janet ran well having just got back from a warm place.  Georgina ran a great PB.  Well done to Tony and Keith who inspire us all.
