Reserve your place on our beginners running group

Our next popular 9 week beginners course will start on 15 May 2018, the course is already filling up.  It is aimed at people who do not run and it is very gentle – you will be supported by a team of volunteer Run Leaders, Coaches and Runners from Doncaster Athletic Club who all give their time freely out of a desire to help others, make friends and support the local running community.

We plan to have an induction evening the week before the course in one of the classrooms at the Keepmoat Stadium.  Date TBC.

The cost is £47, this includes the beginners course, a framed certificate on completion and membership of the club until 2019 – its all you will pay until 2019!  Our runs are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, beginners at 6pm, and after the 9 week course 6:30pm.

We have timed the course to finish during the week of the Doncaster Town Centre 5km event, and we have arranged for our May beginners to take part in this event for just £7, this saves you £10 and you get a running t-shirt for doing this event!  This is a great target to aim for.

All money raised goes back into supporting grassroots athletics, junior members, our beginners and the other members of Doncaster AC / Pacers.  Sign up by emailing Susan Beeby / Martin James at this link.  Or use this email address beginners.pacersdac@gmail.com

Cragside 10k – 14 April 2018

Completed Cragside which lived up to its name! Very pretty course but can’t say same for my performance due to serious lack of sleep and snotty nose with my cold.

Generally Very hilly course including 4km climb which I mostly walked but still managed to do it in 1.04.17 as I was doing 8.40 pace on downhill sections to make up time! Beautiful course though.

Sheffield – 8 April 2018

I’ve not done Sheffield half before and had entered a few months ago after seeing an advert and thinking ..why not? , plus I was quite excited to try out those hills.

Originally I was going to be running with Sarah smith and Kerry Mitchell but due to recent injuries found myself in the company of the Blister sisters Aka Daz Lambert and John Sheerin lol 😂 Continue reading

Unofficially Doncaster Junior Athlete records a new British best performance

Nicole Lannie’s recent u17 women indoor pentathlon score of 3686 points using the 60m sprint instead of the standard 800m, has we think improved the British best points score by just 4 points.  The previous best was set by Sarah Claxton (3682 points) at Crystal Palace, way back on the 21st January 1996 and held the recorded best right up to 2006 when the power of 10 rankings took over recording ranking lists.

Attached information found from the GB Athletics statistics web site.

GB Athletics web site held all the record statistics for this pentathlon event as above, until the Power of 10 results web site took over the all the records from 2006.  We have approached Athletics Weekly, but they use the Power of 10 rankings lists.  We were also informed that Power of 10 no longer provide ranking lists for this event and say that only Gateshead now hold this type of meeting, since Nicole Lannie now holds the meeting record for the NECAA u17 women’s indoor pentathlon event at Gateshead, it must be a new British Best unless anyone else knows different and holds this type of meeting with a points score greater than 3686.

It’s been a  great indoor season for Nicole Lannie, who now holds a world IAAF u18 women 60m hurdles indoor ranking in 92nd position for her time of 8.76s set at Sheffield and actually 3rd in her age year.  Mike

You can expect traffic to be busy so allow extra time to get to the venue.  The race starts at 7pm sharp.

There are toilets there and there should be four portable toilets. You could park beyond the start (outside the Three Merry Lads) but do not park on the road used for the race.

Google Maps Link to the car park. If the car park is full then park in the housing estate just before the car park.  Post code S10 4LJ.
