Tuesday 25th February – 30 Minutes Hill Loops

This Tuesday we’ll be heading over to Osborne Road for some hill loops. 30 minutes of continuous running with efforts up Osborne Road and recovery on the flats and down Windsor.

There’ll be a steady jog over from The Hub in two groups, one going the slightly longer way over the top of Town Fields with the other taking the route past the racecourse and most of the way up Town Moor Avenue before turning towards the session route.

Remember guys – hills are friends (and they have eyes), and if you give it your all going up them you’ll really reap the benefits when you’re chasing those PBs.

As usual, meet at 6:45pm, or 6:20ish if you want to do a dynamic warm up.

See you all Tuesday!

Club Relays Report, Saturday 9th November

Well a great time was had by all this Saturday at the inaugural Club Relays in memory of popular local runner Michael Wakefield, who sadly passed away whilst running Doncaster parkrun in 2016.

The Harriers competed against several local clubs in a total of 22 teams, including Doncaster Athletics Club, Doncaster Tri and several others.  The cold November weather didn’t dampen the atmosphere and all clubs had a good turnout for this inaugural outing for what hopefully will become an annual event.

We managed to field a team that came second overall, leading to our first ever club trophy!  Three of our pairings also got medals in their category, so all in all a successful result for the club and one which should inspire us on to bigger and better things!

Final Team results from ‘Michael Wakefield Relay Trophy 2019’ were:

  1. DAC (9) – 82:20
  2. Danum (15) – 88:40

Harriers in new Hub Home Hubbub!

ATTENTION TROOPS! Exciting news just in.

After many months of waiting, we can now say that from Tuesday 8 October Danum Harriers Running Club’s official base will be the shiny new Cycle Hub at the far end of the Dome. On club nights the Hub will be will be open (and staffed) from 6:00pm to 8:30pm, we have access to toilets, a small cafe, showers and changing facilities including lockers. One of the main benefits of the hub is that we will at last have somewhere to gather inside before our runs if the weather is bad. This is a fantastic new facility for the club, and is something which I’m sure will be much appreciated by new and existing members alike.

Best car park to use is Car Park 4 which is the last one on Booth Avenue (runs parallel to Bawtry Road).

So, next session on Tuesday 8th October is 6:25pm from the Hub for those wanting to warm up and the usual time of 6:45pm for the main session.
