Welcome to Barnsley Athletic Club

Barnsley 10K

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 8 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, Spencer’s 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.

Members Draw

I am going to be starting up the Members Draw again.

Please get involved !!!

It is £12 for 6 months or you can pay £24 for all the year.

How it works you pay your money then get allocated a number.  At the end of every month a number will be drawn.  The winner of that number will win a cash amount.

How much ?? Well that depends on how many get involved .  Let me give you an example  - if 40 people have numbers  (£80 is paid in for that month) half the money will go to the club and half to the winner, so they would get £40.

25 people involved  -  winner would get £25

Well worth it !!

It is to start in the new year, so please pass your money on to me asap !
You will not get a number until funds have been received  -  even if you have shown interest.

Please join in & pass on the information .

Many thanks.


 


Barnsley A.C - Provisional Club Records

I have made a start, these are by no means a true record - some are missing, some are wrong. These club records are (or will be when completed), a combination of performances from the former Dorothy Hyman Track Club 1968-1989, Barnsley Road Runners 1974-1989, Barnsley AC (aka Barnsley DHAC for a short time) 1989-2016, so almost covers 50 years. GB International Dorothy Hyman competed for Hickleton Main SC during her glory days in the late 1950s/early 1960s, took up coaching and made a short comeback during the late 1960s for DHTC, so her fastest times are not listed. I am missing mens sprint records which were probably done by DHTC members - so if anyone can help me fill in some gaps or indeed point out better performances throughout the lists - please get in touch. Surprising the Marathon records have been much harder to find out than I thought it would - some members ran in other people"s names or charity places in events such as London. Also I have been struggling to find members performances elsewhere - so some of them are unoffical and by word of mouth !!! NB Jilly Woodthorpe /Ingman listed under JW
