South Yorkshire Road League 2014

The South Yorkshire Road league will soon be up on us. Doncaster Athletic Club are selling the numbers for £5 (£2 discount).  These events have a long tradition and athletes from Doncaster AC have always competed in them.  The races are highly competitive with the best runners in South Yorkshire taking part but they are open to all abilities and everyone is encouraged to take part.  Doncaster have previously taken 30 athletes to these events and it would be great to have a high turnout again, lets put all our hard training into action and enjoy these great local races.

You can get your numbers from Janet Hampson or Rose / Martin James.

You will need to be a full paid up member of Doncaster Athletic Club, have paid your UKA fee and you need to provide your UKA number when you get your race number (retain your race number for the 4 races).

Runners must be in the Under 17 age group or older as per UKA rules. Continue reading

Doncaster Parkrun – 22/02/14

6 DAC athletes competed in the Doncaster Parkrun, I am delighted to see that George Phillips won the race, I suspect he is the youngest runner to win at Doncaster?  Between the six DAC athletes that competed on the 22nd they have run the Doncaster Parkrun 78 times!  The course is drying out now so it is becoming more runnable, I hope this trend continues…
