The Doncaster Trail Half Marathon result

Race Date: Sunday 18th September 2016 – report by Adrian Moss

A new event based at the Northern Racing School, Doncaster. The course involved a lap round the grass gallop, then into trails through fields and a short wooded section back round the gallop for a second lap. Course was flat with minor undulations, mainly on grass singletrack, no road sections. Due to recent dry spell, and hot day, road shoes were fine but if wet, trail shoes would be needed. Facilities were good and it was well marshalled, although did have a minor moment in the woods as the route just needed another bit of tape and three laps round the gallop, did seem long.

A good start to the event, medal at the finish and option to purchase an event t/shirt

Achilles killed my second lap and run/walk became the race (survival) strategy.

There were 180 finishers, including lone Strider Adrian Moss, well done Adrian. The race was won by Dave Sedgwick of Team Blizzard in 1.21.29. The first woman home was Carolyn Hay of Redhill Road Runners in 1.32.30.
