Important date change for the Doncaster Town Centre Road Races

It is with regret that our town centre races on the 11th July have had to be cancelled due to a clash with the World Cup Semi final football match.

There has been serious disorder in the town centre following recent world cup matches and we cannot guarantee safety.

We are in discussions with DMBC to move the race to the following week, the 18th July, but that will be confirmed soon.

Anyone who has entered can have a refund, transfer to new date or transfer entry to next year.  More details to follow.

Martin Hookways Report:

This was to be only my 2nd race of the year, I was not at the level of fitness I wanted to be at, and this was to be the toughest 50 I’d ever done. With this in mind I told myself I wasn’t going to “race” hard like had initially planned. It was great to see friends on the start line, but to line up with DAC team mates left me beeming with pride. I chose to run with my sticks from the start to get some good training with them ahead of UGB200. The race started and we set off, I had the biggest smile on my face as we heading into Malham Cove. It wasn’t long before the group I was in overshot the first turn, resulting in us having to jump a wall and a big patch of nettles. Not my fault, honest.

Que dramatic jump. I settled into a steady pace, I walked the climbs, ran the flats, had Continue reading
