The Return of the Magnificent Dozen

Sunday 12th February 2017




The Dursley Dozen is now in its 28th year and is established as one of the toughest off-road races around and run under the ARC rules. 

A multi-terrain race of twelve miles over hillsides, roads, woodland, open country, mud, more mud, and solid rock. The course sets off steeply up a road for 200 metres and the ascends a woodland track to the top of Stinchcombe hill. 


Early in January 2017 David Saunders, Alice Lewis and Annette Heylings attended the Gloucestershire AAA Road Race 2016 Series award ceremony picking up the awards for 1st MV65, 2nd FV55 and 2nd FV60. Well done one and all great results.

This Saturday saw an impressive parkrun turn out again, with a significant number using it as a warm up for the Riverbank Rollick. Neil Hodgson travelled to Salisbury to record the fastest parkrun of the weekend for DRC of 18:48, just 3 seconds short of his parkrun all-time best. His impressive age grading was knocked into a hat by Alice Lewis running Chipping Sodbury for the first time in 23:11 to record 80.11% AG.

The main event on the 15th of January for Durley Running Club was Thornbury RC’s Riverbank Rollick.
