Covid 19 update – 1 November 2020

The national lockdown from Thursday presents a national emergency. With Doncaster seeing the highest rate of infections in South Yorkshire and fourth nationally, the risks continue to rise.


The Club Directors have decided to open on Tuesday 3rd November but close from Thursday for the duration of the lockdown.


If all goes well we may be able to open for a couple of weeks before Christmas.
Keep safe everyone and follow the rules.

Track and Trace

From 26 October 2020 members attending training sessions on our track must complete the following form for each session they attend to gain entry. Members with a fob must still complete this.

Club entries in to the 2021 London Marathon

This information is assumed to be correct. Next years race is on 3 October 2021. Information is not currently available from London Marathon that I can see regarding club places.

To go into our club ballot for our club places you must have entered the public ballet, do this here now. 17:00 BST on Friday 9 October 2020

The draw for the club ballot is usually towards the end of the year (TBC) and it will not take place until London Marathon confirm our allocation which is hoped to be 3 places. The draw may well be in 2021.

To enter the ballot:

  • The member needs a rejection slip from the ballot entry – letter or email.
  • If you got a London place last year from DAC’s allocated places you should not be eligible to get one of the clubs allocated places for the next year (Sam Prowse, Martyn Walters + Others (names elude me atm)
  • You must be a first claim member at the time of entering the public ballot and be fully paid up with a UKA license, and if you are successful at the draw you must have renewed your membership with Doncaster AC and your UKA license for the year of the marathon
  • The member has to arrange payment for the place
  • You must run in a Doncaster AC vest
  • The member needs to have completed a half marathon, or race of greater distance during 2018 / 2020 / 2021 (date of draw unknown) before the club ballot is drawn. Given the issues of lack of races this year then a strava link to a training run, which is run without stopping will be acceptable, however, if races restart and athletes have ample time to race a half marathon before the ballot then this should be done.

REVISED COVID 19 PROCEDURES FOR MEMBERS 11/09/2020

Due to a national increase in Covid 19 infections our procedures at the Club on Saturdays, Tues and Thursday evenings have been revised to eliminate any further risk, these measures will take place with immediate effect:

1. Members of the public who are none members or not accompanying a member will not be allowed on site.

2. The main gate will be locked as soon as all members are on site.

3. The toilets will remain locked but opened when needed by members only, with only one person in the toilet area at a time.

4. On arrival at the site members must book in and then remain in the shot throwing area to be collected by their respective coaches.

5. All members will be required to complete a track and trace return, with no exceptions so that we can maintain an up to date register in the event of an outbreak.

6. All members must sanitise their hands on entry to the site, the sanitizer is on the table near the gate or you can used the one on the wall near the office door.

7. Wherever possible only coaches should remove items from the equipment room, which must be cleaned before and after use. Where this is not practical, such as carrying starting blocks the person carrying them must also clean them before and after use.

8. If any member is unwell please do not attend the site for training. In the event of a positive covid trace the member’s coach or a club official must be notified immediately.
