Christmas Schedule

Club programme over the festive period:

Christmas Day – No club, but we would encourage attendance at the Doncaster Parkrun

Boxing Day – 10:30 from the Dome, a nice off road/mixed terrain route (Route M12)

Thursday 27 – as normal 6:45pm from the Dome (6:25pm for the warm up)

New Years Day – 10:30 from the Dome, a nice off road/mixed terrain route (Route M14)

Both the above will have shortcuts available, be nice steady social runs and will be run in 2-3 groups depending on numbers.

Fit Got Real: This Girl Can – Running at the Dome on Mondays 6:00pm

Whether you’re cycling to work, literally running the school run, or getting muddy with your pooch in the park, we’re celebrating all the amazing ways you fit exercise into your life.

This Girl Can, funded by The National Lottery, believes that there’s no right way to get active – if it gets your heart rate up it counts. And we want more women to find what’s right for them.

As part of this scheme Danum Harriers are helping DCLT to provide coached running sessions from the Dome on Mondays from 6:00pm. The sessions start from the Coach Park from Monday 12th November and continue for 12 weeks (see About Us page for location). To book your place contact DCLT or ask at the Dome.

As part of the scheme there are lots of other activities available, all provided by DCLT across their many locations (Swimming, cycling, football, etc) – for more details see the attached document.

Danum Harriers – Living LIRF to the fullest!

As part of the club’s ongoing programme of professional development, we are proud to announce the recent addition of a further eight more qualified run leaders to the team.

This means that as of November 2018, every group and every session will be lead by someone with the England Athletics LIRF (Leadership in Running Fitness) qualification, enhanced DBS check and Level 1 Safeguarding.

2019 Membership Info

Membership subs for 2019 have now been set at £27 and can be paid anytime between 1 November and 28 February.
The Danum Harriers membership part of the subs is increasing from £10 to £12 (which is also the fee for second claims) and is the first increase since the club was formed.
Affiliation of individuals to English Athletics stays at £15 and makes up the remainder of the £27 club membership subscription. This will be paid over to English Athletics in April 2019. (NB: Whilst individual affiliation has been frozen by EA this year, the fee the clubs pay for affiliation has risen by 50% which is one of the reasons we felt the need to increase the subs)

New Members
New members wishing to join the club from 1 November onwards will receive 14 months membership for the price of 12 months. However, they will not receive their English Athletics registration before April 2019. If members want their unique runner number (URN) number sooner, they can opt to pay an additional £15 to cover the rest of the EA year which runs up to the end of March. NB: Affiliated club runners can to enter UKA races for £2 less than those who are unattached to a running club.

Membership can be paid in one or two ways, preferably;

By Bank transfer directly into the clubs bank account. You put your name on “Reference” field so we can relate each payment received to the person transferring the money. Once received we will e-mail you confirmation that we have received it. The club’s account details are:
Sort Code 30-92-68, Account Number 33632768

By cash or cheque in a sealed envelope with your name on the front of the envelope.

If any of your details have changed, for example your address, telephone numbers, email address or emergency contact number please email Caroline or use the contact form on the site.

We do not share your information except with English Athletics and then solely for the purpose of registering you as a competing athlete.

Finally anyone who is a second claim member you only need to pay £12 as your EA membership will be collected by your first claim club.

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact Caroline Greening.

Danum Harriers go from strength to strength!

If you were down at the club this week you might have noticed a lot of members turning up, but you probably didn’t know that this week officially saw a record attendance over the two nights – 112 runners! Not only that but Thursday saw the biggest attendance in a single session (60), so that’s 2 milestones in one week!

It’s not the club’s sole aim to get the most runners down that we can of course, but we all know the physical and mental well-being benefits that running brings (especially with others), and the more people we can share that with the better. As you all know we’re Doncaster’s friendliest running club, with continually low fees, and now we’re in a great new location with all the facilities we could need, so how long will it be until we have 70, 80, or even more coming down?!

If you’ve stumbled across the site looking for a running club, what more reason do you need to come down and give us a try? We have:

  • 2 organised sessions a week with qualified run leaders
  • A members-only Facebook group with a thriving social scene where you can organise as many other runs as you can find people to run with
  • Club attendances at many races (road league, cross country, club championship races, etc.) so if you want to race you’ll never be alone!
  • Numerous social events throughout the year – away runs, club socials, Xmas/Birthday events
  • Discounts and benefits with local (and some national) running equipment and physiotherapy suppliers

All for the princely sum of £27 a year!
