Robert Sidebottom “I am so proud to be a member of Doncaster Athletics Club. CaptureI was previously a member of the Blackheath Harriers and you trump the oldest running club in England by a long shot. Janet Kerry it was so your day today. I loved watching you cheering with the crowds and I am so proud of your time and that you are my friend. Rachel Black you did fantastic and I know you will be proud of your achievement today. Marie-Louise Taylor thank you for your support. Your turn! X  P. S. Janet Kerry you would have got an even better time if you didn’t have your arms in the air whooping all the time! Wait till I dob you in to Paul Brown.

South Yorkshire Road League – Wednesday 29 April

Click for the location of car park, this will fill up.

This is a difficult venue to reach in rush hour, particularly if you are going through the middle of Sheffield so allow plenty of time.  I plan to approach from the north perhaps coming through Barnsley.

Information from the organizers below:

“Weds the 29th April is the date for the third fixture, at Low Bradfield; The event organiser would like to remind ALL attending of the following:- Do not park on the  course.

Do not use the Plough Inn toilets. (Toilets are available in the village centre and in the Cricket pavillion)

This year is seeing numbers of runners higher than previously experienced in the series; whilst this is good news, it does mean that car parking and general conditions specified by the venues used must be adhered to if we are to enjoy the continued use of these venues.

Please comply with the above requests.”

Track closure – Monday 18th May until 30th May

To get us ready for the track and field season we need to carry out maintenance work to our running track.  This will start on 18 May and is planned to last 2 weeks (hopefully less if conditions are good).

No training will take place from the track and our facilities will remain locked up over this time.

Road runners meeting as normal as are the Doncaster Pacers.

Please speak to your coaches to see if any training is available for your groups.
