Dam Flask Relays – 27 June 2017

An amazing 34 Doncaster AC runners took part at the South Yorkshire Road Relays yesterday, racing against the best in the county.

Special mentions to Nick Newman for guiding Sharon Maughan, Stuart Bartley and Karen Bartley for standing in at the last minute.  Healing vibes to Gemma who we hope will make a speedy recovery.

Thanks to Sheffield Running club for hosting the excellent event.

The ladies fastest 50 included 4th, Nicola Devine – excellent result!

The men’s fastest 50 included 26th, Lee Milburn and 40th, Chris Moran – great running both.

Conditions were damp but not bad, it takes a major effort to get everyone to the start so many thanks to all who took part.  Its a great course taking in a lap of a reservoir on roads and not much of it is flat. Continue reading

Liverpool Rock ‘n’ Roll running festival

Looks like all our runners had a brilliant weekend, some nice feedback posted on our facebook wall from Rebecca:

Just wanted to say….
A huge thank you to these two lovely ladies Sue Hunt & Gemma Louise Ward who I randomly met about a 3rd of the way into the Liverpool Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon yesterday. We started to chat about all sorts and they let me tag along with them! I’m not sure I’d have made the finish in such good spirits if i hadn’t have met them. They are so friendly, encouraging, down-to-earth and an asset to your running club. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️
Hopefully bump into you guys again at a race in the future. Thank you! Xx
P.s. Who’d have thought ‘blue wellies’ would bring us together! Continue reading
