The next fixture is at Doncaster, 16 November at the Northern Racing College on Bawtry Road. Its a great course so with it being on our door step lets have a great turnout, numbers available from the cabin. We will be looking for marshals to help the event take place.
A warm welcome to the extra faces including Caroline Wheelhouse who ran a marathon only a week ago (and is ranked No 1 in UK for V55 Lady!) and Jane Pickard who is on our beginner running course at the moment! Some new to cross country and all enjoyed it!
Very impressive running everyone, 40 runners took part from DAC and we probably had over 15 men / U20 / U17 who did not get to take part. Its quite a long drive so disappointing.
The men’s race was cancelled at the last minute. This will have been a very difficult decision to make by the organizers. I was as disappointed as anyone but these things happen. The official statement follows:
to all U17Men and Senior & Vet Men who never got to run today. In the end there was no alternative but to end the event before the last race. The position regarding deer in the park meant that it was not safe to continue. It was a complicated situation and some of you may be aware of the complicating issues. I would prefer not to put them down in print.
Unfortunately, because of the cancelling of the last race, there will be no team points for seniors or juniors (the U17s count as juniors for the points totals).
I will let you know what the situation will be for the Men’s, Vet Mens and U17 Men’s League awards when I have given it a bit more thought. At the moment, I can’t see any way other than making it the best 2 out of 3 with the Champs as a compulsory counter.”
