This Thursday we’re running R5 – the 5.1 Mile route out South from the Dome and around the Lakeside to the Red Path to Bessacarr Lane. We then turn back towards home and return via Bawtry Road and Ellers Avenue, around the Tennis Club and back onto Ellers Road to return past Hall Cross on the White Path. It’s an anti-clockwise route.
DAC have come up with an idea of a club relay race in honour of Michael Wakefield, who sadly passed away at Doncaster parkrun last year. A nominal fee of approx £3 pp (tbc) with proceeds going to Michael’s charity.
It’s still in the planning stage but the format will be (starting around 1pm on Saturday 9th November):
Teams of 12
2 from each category run together
Each leg is approx 2 miles
Leg 1 – 2 x Ladies under 36
Leg 2 – 2 x Men under 36
Leg 3 – 2 x Ladies 36-50
Leg 4 – 2 x Men 36-50
Leg 5 – 2 x Ladies over 50
Leg 6 – 2 x Men over 50
It’ll be a great day, lots of local running clubs coming together for a great cause.
Please let Lynn or Adi know if you’d like to be in a team – we’d love to get as many there as possible – Harrier takeover 💙💛
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.
Many of our intrepid Harriers are racing this weekend at the little known event “The Great North Run”, and there’s a group of members staying a little more local at the Bawtry Forest Trail 10k. So if you have the time to spare on Sunday why not turn on the TV and do a bit of Harrier spotting or head over to Bawtry and cheer in person!
Latest reports are uploaded to the Run Reports page – Milton 5km, Snowdonia Half, Cleethorpes parkrun, Doncaster Town centre and the Great Hucklow Fell Race.
Don’t forget it’s the next round in the Club Champs at the Grimsby 10k on Sunday, as well as the Round Donny Run on the same day – good luck everyone!
