South Yorkshire Road League – Final Fixture Oxspring 13 May 2015 (late report)

We have had a very successful year with record number taking part, winners in several age Capturegroups and we fielded complete teams in 2 or the 3 categories.  It was disappointing to not field a complete senior mens team in all races, especially given that after the second race we were in second place.  Despite what you might think, these races are excellent preparation for the racing season and I am hopeful that going forward more senior men will support the club and compete in both this series and the cross country.  Thank you to all 38 athletes that competed in at least one of the races, it was great to see so many Doncaster AC vests being worn with pride (including some athletes new to the road league) and it was fantastic to see so many of our new runners from the Pacers taking part, this demonstrated how all abilities are welcome to take part.

Anyone who does not believe that these races represent a fantastic training opportunity need look no further than our inspirational veteran athletes, some of who are ranked Number 1 in the UK on Power of 10!  How have they got to such a high standard?  Year in year out they do the South Yorkshire Road League and Cross Country League as part of their training / racing program.
