Winter Time Trial

The traditional Town Moor time Trial starts again next Tuesday….18th October 2016. We meet up on Town moor Avenue from 6:00 to start running at 6:30. For the experienced of you, there is no need to tell you about the format, so this is just for the uninitiated. When you get to the meeting point, (Town Moor Avenue opposite Hampton Road) give your name to Roy Veall, after a lot of debate you will get your handicap.  Numbers will be allocated again on the night, or email doncaster.runner@googlemail.com if you know you are coming and I will make your number in advance, indicate your current 5k or 10k time please.

The time trial starts with the slower runners and progresses through everyone until the fastest are set off according to their allocated time handicap.  So faster runners keep warm until your start time.

It is then 3 laps of the course which is shown here.  This is an excellent event where all the club comes together, it is very sociable and also an excellent training tool, with the slower runners having their chance to finish a race in 1st position and the faster runners there are targets to chase.

The total distance is just under 5 miles, all on tarmac.  We hope to put a marshal or 2 out on the course.  The road at the top of the field has been resurfaced in the last month.

Oxford Half Marathon – 9 October 2016

Massive well done to Jodi, great report:

I just wanted to let you know that today I completed my first ever half marathon. It was1 the Oxford half which I chose as I wanted to run with my sister who lives down there. I’m not normally a fan of massive events, I love the local runs, but this event was brilliantly organised. Loads of drinks stations including lucozade plus jelly babies. There were loads and loads of spectators all around the route who cheered everyone on. We had high-fives, 2 brass bands, steel drums and a bit of dance/trance DJing! I completed the race in 2:04:19 which I am really chuffed with. I would not have been able to do this without the support of the Pacers. Andrea and Tony in particular gave me loads of great advice. Rose’s intervals have really improved my fitness -especially the dreadful hills! I joined the pacers in May and I absolutely love it. I can’t believe that I didn’t join sooner. So thank you to the organisers, the run leaders and everyone who runs with me for making running so enjoyable.

Thanks again for all that you do to keep the group going.
