Ferriby 10 Mile – 26 January 2014
What a great day for Doncaster Athletic Club athletes, the conditions completely atrocious with near freezing temperature, driving rain with sleet and strong winds, but we still had 13 DAC runners finish the race with a field of 601 athletes.
Carl Ryde won the race and our men won the team prize! It definitely was not the day for PB’s but by my reckoning Glynn Jones ran a PB by 8 seconds. Rose ran a PB by just over 30 seconds.
