South Yorkshire Road League – Low Bradfield 30 March 2014
Another long drive through the traffic jam that is Sheffield. We all just made it on time although we were missing Dean Watson who picked up an injury, wishing Dean a speedy recovery. The course was wet and slippery (for me anyway!) but some fast times were ran.
Bertie ran a new club record for U20 man winning the race with the great time of 26:31. Great to see Andy Siddle working his way up the leader board again! And as always Mick Page is the Vet to lead the rest! 16 DAC athletes competed, great to see so many.
Team results – The Senior Men are in third place about 2 and a half minutes behind Kimberworth and over 15 minutes ahead of 4th place. The Vet Men are in fifth place approx 14 minutes behind Penistone and 6 Minutes ahead of Barnsley Harriers.
You can still get a number for the last race which is on 14 May at Barnsley so it will be a lot easier to get to from Doncaster!
Please can all athletes ensure they use the designated toilet facilities as complaints have been made about people in general using the fields and also using local pubs which are not offering their facilities for the race.
Great running from team #DAC
Doncaster Parkrun – 3 May 2014

North Lincolnshire Half Marathon – 4 May 2014
Philip Bussey won his age group with a fantastic time and he should be ranked 10th in UK for this time! He sets a new Doncaster AC record with that time.
Phil and Jay ran the road league on Wednesday so have a couple of easy days guys.
Good running by Glynn who I think has another half to tackle next week!
