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 road runner members should visit our sister website, Doncaster Pacers. All abilities are welcome from international athletes to 14 minute mile runners. Call Kev Lincoln, Club Chairman on 07739312835 for more information. For membership details click here. Or join our facebook group – open to all interested in local athletics and running with over 500 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.
To get us ready for the track and field season we need to carry out maintenance work to our running track. This will start on 18 May and is planned to last 2 weeks (hopefully less if conditions are good).
No training will take place from the track and our facilities will remain locked up over this time.
Road runners meeting as normal as are the Doncaster Pacers.
Please speak to your coaches to see if any training is available for your groups – the Brodsworth Bash is back this year during this closure:
Tuesday 19th May 2015 the Brodsworth Bash is back, a 2.4 miles trail run on the Brodsworth Pasture, all off road (opposite the A1).
All runners will be placed into one of three teams, registration at the Pickburn Arms from 6pm ready for a 6.30pm start. £1 per person entry.
Trophies for the winning team, free chip sarnies to competitors and marshals afterwards at The Pickburn Arms.
We do need some marshals along the route, anyvolunteers see Kev prior to the date.
A GREAT CLUB OUTING ALL LEVELS OF ABILITY WELCOME.
