Club Nights

Posts relating to club nights (Tuesday/Thursdays)

Tuesday 16th October – 5,4,3,2,1 Intervals ** UPDATE **

** UPDATE **
Hi all, as many of you will be aware a tree has come down in those recent high winds, right across our TT route.

Just in case it is still blocking the route we will do a pyramid interval session instead (which was planned for next week) at the HSRC. This will entail efforts of 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 minute all with 2 mins recovery.

Those recovering from races are more than welcome to come and do some easy laps with us or their own thing if they prefer. TT will then be rescheduled to next Tuesday

Thursday 18th October – 6.3 Mile Run (R6)

Thursday’s run route is R6, a run (clockwise) out down Carr House Road to Town Moor and back down Bawtry Road/Cantley Lane into Bessacarr and returning via Boswell/Ellers/White Path.

As is now the norm we will be doing the dynamic warm up at 6:15 pm for a 6:20 pm start in the coach park.

The 5km group will also be running as per usual.

Total distance: 6.27 mi

Danum Harriers go from strength to strength!

If you were down at the club this week you might have noticed a lot of members turning up, but you probably didn’t know that this week officially saw a record attendance over the two nights – 112 runners! Not only that but Thursday saw the biggest attendance in a single session (60), so that’s 2 milestones in one week!

It’s not the club’s sole aim to get the most runners down that we can of course, but we all know the physical and mental well-being benefits that running brings (especially with others), and the more people we can share that with the better. As you all know we’re Doncaster’s friendliest running club, with continually low fees, and now we’re in a great new location with all the facilities we could need, so how long will it be until we have 70, 80, or even more coming down?!

If you’ve stumbled across the site looking for a running club, what more reason do you need to come down and give us a try? We have:

  • 2 organised sessions a week with qualified (or soon to be qualified) run leaders
  • A members-only Facebook group with a thriving social scene where you can organise as many other runs as you can find people to run with
  • Club attendances at many races (road league, cross country, club championship races, etc.) so if you want to race you’ll never be alone!
  • Numerous social events throughout the year – away runs, club socials, Xmas/Birthday events
  • Discounts and benefits with local (and some national) running equipment and physiotherapy suppliers

All for the princely sum of £25 a year!

5km Group for beginners

Interest in a group which runs approximately 5k at about 12 min miles (intro level/runners coming back from injury) has been growing steadily over the past few weeks so we are going to give a go up till Christmas and see how it works out. This will be every Thursday (not Tuesdays) at 6:45pm so if you know anyone that might be interested in running in this group then please feel free to spread the word?

Details of route, leader, etc. will be sorted on the night.
