The Government have set out plans today to extend social distancing restrictions to at least 19th July, which means our two races above cannot now take place. We are unable to move to another date this year therefore we have no option but to reschedule to 2022 as follows:
Sandall Beat 10K – Wednesday 8th June 2022
Doncaster 5K – Wednesday 13th July 2022
All entries will automatically be transferred to next year and our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Refunds can be requested up to 30th June 2021.
The Cusworth 10k remains live for the 3rd October 2021 unless restrictions going forward change.

This year we are posting out the numbers to ease congestion on the night, for entries made up to midnight 26th May 2021.
Headphones of all descriptions are not allowed in our events, this includes bone conducting type. The advice that UKA give is that it is down to individual race organizers to make this call and from a safety point of view this is the call we have made.
We will once again have the use of the tremendous facilities at Castle Park the home of Championship Rugby Club the Doncaster Knights. They will be providing us with changing and showering facilities along with hot and cold food, refreshments and of course a fully licensed bar, where you will be able to regale your account of the great race you have just completed.
Sandall Beat Wood is the most popular woodland in Doncaster, it was established in the early 1800’s and it is recognised as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Local Nature Reserve. The woodland covers 140 acres and it is well served by many woodland trails making it the ideal venue for this 10K race. Doncaster Athletic Club makes good use of the woodland and surrounding area on their training nights. The start and finish areas have changed following site developments but remain within the Doncaster Knights ground.
In the middle of the wood is an adventure playground so the kids will have plenty to do. The race passes this area twice making it an ideal area for spectators.
The surface conditions are in general, well made trails, grass, stone and a few hundred meters of tarmac pavement towards the finish. Depending on the amount of rainfall some areas can be wet and muddy underfoot. The route is free of obstructions such as stiles and bridges.
Medals to all Fun Run Finishers and T Shirt to all 10k finishers
