11 June 2014
All on-line entries will have the race information pack e-mailing to them 2 weeks before the race and runners will collect their numbers on the night. Postal entries will include a stamped addressed envelope so their race instructions and number will still be posted out 2 weeks before.
Sponsored by Metres to Miles, and in association with Doncaster Knights, Doncaster AC present the Sandall Beat Trail Race on Wednesday 11 June 2014.
We will once again have the use of the tremendous facilities at Castle Park the home of Championship Rugby Club the Doncaster Knights. They will be providing us with changing and showering facilities along with hot and cold food, refreshments and of course a fully licensed bar, where you will be able to regale your account of the great race you have just completed.
Sandall Beat Wood is the most popular woodland in Doncaster, it was established in the early 1800’s and it is recognised as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Local Nature Reserve. The woodland covers 140 acres and it is well served by many woodland trails making it the ideal venue for this 10K race. Doncaster Athletic Club makes good use of the woodland and surrounding area on their training nights.
In the middle of the wood is an adventure playground so the kids will have plenty to do. The race passes this area twice making it an ideal area for spectators.
The surface conditions are in general, well made trails, grass, stone and a few hundred meters of tarmac pavement towards the finish. Depending on the amount of rainfall some areas can be wet and muddy underfoot. The route is free of obstructions such as stiles and bridges.
The Fun Run starts the evening at 7:00pm and the 10K is off at 7:30pm.
