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.

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.
We have had a very successful year with record number taking part, winners in several age groups and we fielded complete teams in 2 or the 3 categories. It was disappointing to not field a complete senior mens team in all races, especially given that after the second race we were in second place. Despite what you might think, these races are excellent preparation for the racing season and I am hopeful that going forward more senior men will support the club and compete in both this series and the cross country. Thank you to all 38 athletes that competed in at least one of the races, it was great to see so many Doncaster AC vests being worn with pride (including some athletes new to the road league) and it was fantastic to see so many of our new runners from the Pacers taking part, this demonstrated how all abilities are welcome to take part.
Anyone who does not believe that these races represent a fantastic training opportunity need look no further than our inspirational veteran athletes, some of who are ranked Number 1 in the UK on Power of 10! How have they got to such a high standard? Year in year out they do the South Yorkshire Road League and Cross Country League as part of their training / racing program.
Kev Newman #1 in UK
Caroline Wheelhouse #1 in UK
This race meets the standard for Power of 10 to be classified as a 5 mile road race, as such looking at national rankings, Caroline Wheelhouse is ranked number 1 V55 lady, Kevin Newman is ranked number 1 V55 Man, Simon Wright is ranked No 2 V50 man, Mick Page is ranked 5th V60 man and Philip Bussey is ranked 5th V65 man.
