Pathway into the Doncaster Pacers

The Doncaster Pacers specialise in beginner runners and to ensure you get the best support possible we limit our beginners courses to 3 each year, this is so when the beginners graduate we then put all our resources into helping them develop further to join our intermediate groups.  All our beginners courses have 2 coached sessions each week.

Track & Field sessions are available to those aged 8-15, teaching you the basics of athletics and functional skills you’ll need in all sports. Our Track & Field training groups in the main club are currently full, so we ask that beginners start at our Saturday Club before joining.

We offer great value for money and first class facilities including our six lane running track with covered seating, tuck shop, changing and showering facilities, free car parking in the centre of Doncaster and a great location for running on paths and trails.
