Doncaster parkrun 28 June 2014

Thanks to Stuart Bartley, Janet Hampson and Robert Sidebottom who ran in with the Doncaster Pacers to help them complete their run.  It is the support of people like these that helps the group gain in confidence and get hooked.  The enthusiasm we see after the run is amazing.

Doncaster AC hit a milestone this week with over 100 of our members having now completed the Doncaster parkrun.  Well done to each and every one of you for helping the club hit this milestone after just 40 events and if you have not tried it for a few weeks come back and try the course now it is dry.  We still have lots of runners who have not tried it yet, just register here and give it a try.

It was great to see DAC performing so well again with 1st and 2nd were CaptureGeorge and Joseph (PB) and 1st and 2nd lady’s were Georgina and Chloe Craven (who tried the parkrun for the 1st time this week).

PB’s for Joseph (17 seconds), Robert (22 seconds), Georgina (3 seconds), Simon (12 seconds), Ruth (41 seconds), Diane (21 seconds) and Suzanne (an incredible 2 and a half minutes).

Welcome to first timers Chloe, Sundip, Sarah and Rose and thanks again guys for getting Doncaster AC through 100! Continue reading
