DonFaster 5k

Danum Harriers Running Club are pleased to bring you a chip-timed Friday night race series based at the Cycle Hub in Doncaster, on a fast and flat, floodlit and officially measured 5K course.

The track is a safe environment, suitable for all running abilities – first timers or seasoned pros!

All race times will end up on Run Britain / powerof10.

The Cycle Hub offers a small changing area and toilets, together with a café serving both snacks and hot and cold drinks.  Use any of the 4 car parks around The Dome.

Feel free to ask any questions.

The second race in the series for 2024 is now available to book! It will take place at the Doncaster Dome Cycle Hub as usual on Friday July 12th at 7pm.

*** England Athletics have rebranded RunBritain as RunEvents and launched a new website. The race is available to book below on the new site, you will have to create a profile if you haven’t already. If you previously entered on the old RunBritain site this may not show on the new system, but we should still have your entry details (see this post in our Facebook page for more details) ***
The race entry can be found on RunEvents here
