The gazebo was of the flimsy type, but that didn’t bother us. The rain was coming down heavily, and it was threatening to snow any time soon, so we were glad of any extra cover we could get. We had our mandatory kit strapped to us in our race vests, some wearing them on top of their waterproofs, others underneath, and we were ready for the off. Word had gotten round that people were already withdrawing owing to the threat of worsening conditions, but that was to be expected.
At 6 am we set off into the darkness from Liverpool’s Albert Dock, leaving our support angel Angie Clarke in the warmth of the hotel, safe in the knowledge that when we needed our spirits lifting, a change of kit, or something comforting (you never did crack open the hip flask Becky ) over the coming 10 – 12 hours, she would always be there – and she was. Rather unselfishly, my boss had come all the way from Doncaster to wave us off, but owing to the conditions, I only saw her for a second as we passed on the start-line, such were the conditions.
The route we encountered over the next 50.2 miles was a proper mish-mash of urban/ industrial / rural / (aren’t they rooms in The Crystal Maze ? )…and followed National Cycle Route 56 and then the Trans Pennine Trail , finishing at Didsbury Sports Ground in not so sunny Manchester, the home of real football, and en-route taking in the sights, sounds and smells of Liverpool, Widnes, Warrington, Dunham Massey, Altricham and finally Didsbury.

Our next popular 9 week beginners course will start on 15 May 2018, the course is already filling up. It is aimed at people who do not run and it is very gentle – you will be supported by a team of volunteer Run Leaders, Coaches and Runners from Doncaster Athletic Club who all give their time freely out of a desire to help others, make friends and support the local running community.
We plan to have an induction evening the week before the course in one of the classrooms at the Keepmoat Stadium. Date TBC.
The cost is £47, this includes the beginners course, a framed certificate on completion and membership of the club until 2019 – its all you will pay until 2019! Our runs are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, beginners at 6pm, and after the 9 week course 6:30pm.
We have timed the course to finish during the week of the Doncaster Town Centre 5km event, and we have arranged for our May beginners to take part in this event for just £7, this saves you £10 and you get a running t-shirt for doing this event! This is a great target to aim for.
All money raised goes back into supporting grassroots athletics, junior members, our beginners and the other members of Doncaster AC / Pacers. Sign up by emailing Susan Beeby / Martin James at this link. Or use this email address email@example.com

East Hull 20 – 25 March 2018
Lovely conditions for the 20 mile race at Hull, well done all at one of my favourite races. This race had been reorganised due to the snow and ice of the previous week, so a few of our runners could not make it.
