Cross Country Information for 2014 / 2015

The cross country season is almost upon us!  All members are able to compete from the age of 8 upwards (some events have age restrictions).

Cross country fixtures are great fun and an excellent opportunity to build up your strength over the winter and to keep race fit, start 2015 on top form.

On the local level we have the South Yorkshire Cross Country League the cost to Doncaster AC athletes is £5 (£2 discount from the cost of £7 paid by the club) , with four events across the country competing against all our friends at South Yorkshire clubs – £1.25 per race.  This year Doncaster AC are hosting one of the fixtures.  Doncaster AC is in division 1 and we need you to help us stay in division 1!  Keep your race number for the four races.  The forth race is the South Yorkshire Championships.

Doncaster AC uses the South Yorkshire league as our club championships, to qualify you need to complete three of the four fixtures and one of the three must be the last one.  Prizes are awarded to the first 3 in each age group.  Numbers for the South Yorkshire League should be available from Thursday 18 September, see Kev Lincoln.  You need your UKA number to get a race number and you must wear your DAC vest.
