Results update – 24 August 2014 – Belper 30k, Leek + Fleetwood Half Marathons and 4 parkruns!

 Belper 30k – 17 August 2014

Sharon Fieldhouse completed this tough off road 30k as part of her training for the Munich Marathon in 7 weeks, I think this is was the longest run Sharon has ever done!  She finished with a time of 4:14:49.  Amazing running Sharon and hopefully you have recovered well.  I am sure she was grateful for Keith Lindley keeping her going.

Fleetwood Half Marathon – 14 August 2014

Massive congratulations to James Smith who took a fantastic 3:07 off his half marathon PB to finish with a time of 1:21:23 in 16th place.  James is training for the Berlin Marathon and he is on the best form of his life!

CaptureLeek Half Marathon – 17 August 2014

I am currently marathon training and wanted to have a go at a half marathon to see where I am with my training, I should have picked a flatter one with 370m of climb but it was a nice low key race with amazing views.  Runners world gives the race a PB potential of 20%.  I finished in 12th place with a time of 84:33.  The winner finished in 77:10.

YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!

You might not know but the club is run entirely by volunteers and we need your help to take the club forward and to become even more successful.

DO YOU EVER ASK YOURSELF:

  • What do I do for DAC?
  • Can I give anything back to the club?
  • What do I know about how the club functions?
  • What do I know about the Club finances?
  • What are the Club plans for the future?

Now is your chance to do something about it! How?

Attend the Club AGM in the players lounge in the main stadium at 7pm Thursday 9th October 2014, light refreshments provided. Full agenda, any items for discussion must be notified at least 21 days before the meeting, to Barry Barnes, Company Secretary.
