The league is open to all members in all age groups and is an excellent introduction to competitive athletics for all new members as well as providing excellent competition for all age groups.

Numbers are available for purchase every Tuesday and Thursday Night. The price is £10 and the same number will be used for each of the matches so please make sure you keep them safe.

Please note that I will need to know what events each athlete is planning to do at least one week before the event takes place to enable the timetable to be finalised in advance.

If you have any questions regarding the league please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Les Grant.

Kev Lincoln has the numbers for these lovely local road races.  You must have paid your membership and UKA fee to take part.

They are all 5 miles long and athletes of all abilities are welcome to compete against hundreds of runners from local clubs.  The races are great fun and if you are not sure just turn up and have a go.  Run them flat out or just treat them as a training run, its up to you.  We have previously taken 30 DAC runners to them and most if not all have a pub at the finish.

The races are held on Wednesday evenings and it only costs £6 to enter the series.  Your performances will be recorded on the club rankings and the national Power of 10 rankings.  The first race is on the 10 April at Oxspring.  We are encouraged to car share to save money.

Runners must be in the U17 age group or older.  You run as a member of Doncaster Athletic Club’s team, the fastest runners will count towards the team prizes which are first 3 ladies (regardless of age) and first 4 men (senior and vet men score separately).  You also run as an individual and prizes are awarded for each age group.  Club vests must be worn.
