South Yorkshire Road Relays – 24 June 2014

We had more teams taking part this year than we had managed for the last few years, 18 DAC athletes competed (and no one had to run 2 legs).

Our senior men (the Dream Team) of Callum Wilson, Andrew Siddle, Dean Watson and Bertie Houghton finished in third place all putting in good runs, well done guy’s.

CaptureOur other senior men’s team put in some great performances with Dave Sedgwick running the 3rd fastest DAC time on the night and Dave Tune the 5th.  Ben Elliott is going from strength to strength running a great time and welcome to Sid who only joined DAC 2 weeks ago and is racing already.

Our vet men team ran a great race with some regulars and some new to the Dam Flask relays, hope you all enjoyed it.

We had 2 ladies teams this year which is an improvement on last year and next year we are determined to go even better with 3 or 4 ladies teams.

The Senior Ladies are all new runners to our club coming through the Doncaster Pacers group and for some of them this was their first race in their DAC vests!  We hope you enjoyed the experience and eating Rose’s cake!

The V35 ladies were Rose, Janet and Jo, all out ladies put in great performances.
