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.
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.
Last Thursday (11th April) saw a visit by Maltby Running club to the Harriers, and a great time was had by all. If you’re looking for a running club in the Doncaster area you should pop down and give us a try, you can see the kind of runs and fun we have in the video below, alternatively if you’re in the Maltby area why not pop along to MRC and try them out. Running isn’t just about trying to beat your PB at a 5k or a 10k, the real fun is running with others!
Some said it couldn’t be done. Some said it wouldn’t be done. Others were strangely silent and voiced no opinion on it. But it’s happened again – Thursday saw the record for the biggest attendance in a single session broken again – 67!
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 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 £27 a year!
