Doncaster Athletic Club caters for Track and Field, Road Running and Cross Country athletes of all levels, we now have over 500 members and we are proud to count hundreds of junior members from across Doncaster and beyond in our membership. Our main training evenings are Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm.  Our location and travel advice can be found here.

We are a friendly club and new members should visit our sister website, Doncaster Pacers or call Kev Lincoln, Club Chairman on 07739312835.  For membership details click here. Or join our facebook group – open to all interested in local athletics and running with over 425 members.


We currently have a waiting list for junior members. Non-members are welcome to attend our Academy, where our coaches will work with each athlete to find a suitable place in the main club. No need to book, just turn up on the day. Senior members can just call down on a Tuesday or Thursday to have a chat and a run.

We are committed to equality of opportunity in sport for all, irrespective of gender, race, disability or age. Safety and personal achievement are our priorities, as members strive to reach personal goals in sport and fulfil their potential.

January 2015 Time Trial Results

Well done everyone last night, another good turnout (52 runners) and great running in freezing conditions.  Thanks to everyone who helped.

The February 2015 handicap start times are published as well as the results, this is so you can time your arrival and you are not hanging about in the cold for so long.  It will start at 18:30 so if your handicap is 0:00 you go at 18:30.  (so do everyone who is planning to do 1 or 2 laps).

If your handicap is 20:00 you go at 18:50 and so on.  I still recommend you arrive 15 minutes before your start time to let us know you are on site, get a replacement number if required and get a warm up in.
