Barnsley Athletic Club 

The club was formed in the late 1980s following an amalgamation of two well-established local clubs; Barnsley Road Runners and Dorothy Hyman Athletic Club.

The club is a truly inclusive one, with over 600 members ranging in age from 6 to the over 60s, competing over road, cross country, track and field events.  We cater for runners of all abilities, from beginners through to county and regional level.

The main training evenings are Tuesdays and Thursdays, with road runners meeting at the Barnsley Metrodome at 6.45 pm for club runs catering for all abilities and structured training sessions set by a UKA Level 4 endurance coach.  Track and field athletes meet at the Dorothy Hyman Stadium in Cudworth from 6pm onwards, where a variety of training groups are taken by qualified coaches, focussing on sprinting, middle distance, jumps and throws.  In addition, individual coaches also organise training sessions on other evenings for different groups.  Many runners also meet on a Saturday or Sunday morning for longer group runs, particularly when training for the marathon distance.

The club is a renowned promoter of events, and organises the Barnsley 10k, South Yorkshire Half Marathon, Ward Green 6, Spencerís Dash Series and the Dorothy Hyman Winter Track Series, which draw runners from the local area and beyond.

We welcome new runners to our training nights.
