Cross Country – Sunday 30th April – Kew

We had a good turn out last weekend for the start of the Cross Country season, on a lovely sunny Sunday morning. Hope to see more of you out there next week.

This week’s race is hosted by Kew at Stradbroke Park in Kew (see attached map). To ensure a smooth running of the events and the season, could you please ensure your child is registered for Cross Country & that they WEAR THEIR BIB on race day.

  • Subway Bib – please make sure you have your bib each weekend. The runners will be scanned to record their times. If athletes do not have their bibs on, it slows down the running of events, some centres will refuse to record times if athletes aren’t wearing their bibs. If you have lost yours from the summer season please let us know ASAP.
  • The Cross Country Season is FREE to participate in for all summer registered athletes. If you do want to run this winter, we ask that you complete the Cross Country registration form. This will allow us to get emails out each week to those that are intending to run Cross Country. After this week, Cross Country information will only be sent out to those who have registered for the season. When registering, don’t forget to press submit TWICE to register successfully.
  • The Calendar and timetable for the season can be found on the Cross Country page and in DLAC Teamapp
    Uniforms – we run in Doncaster (Green and Gold) uniforms for Cross Country. If you don’t have your centre uniform yet, they will be available for sale on Sunday, please make sure you have cash for your purchase
  • Timing of events is 9:30am U13-U15 3k, 9:45am U11-U12 2k, 10:00am U6 500m, 10:15am U9-U10 1500m, 10:30am U7-U8 1k

At Doncaster Little Athletics we run a number of programs for children in the Under 6 to Under 16 age groups.

More information about our programs can be found here:

We also run a coaching program for those looking to get involved with coaching.

Centre Championships

Towards the end of the track & field season, we run a very exciting interclub competition, the Centre Championships which run over a 3 week period.  Each week rotates each program, finalising on program 1 to include the Ontrack athletes.  All Athletes have an opportunity to win medals per event in their age group throughout the Centre Championships.

For the updated rules of the Centre Championships, click on here

Also note that some of the events are run twice over the 3 programs, so to understand which event is counted for medal opportunity refer to the medal matrix here


Our photo galleries allow us to recognise the effort, determination & fun our Athletes put into their events.

Doncaster Centre & Clubs have a number of photographers who will be out on the track taking photos of our athletes. Our volunteers have Working with Children checks and will be wearing a yellow vest and identification. All photos are taken and used in accordance with the DLAC Photography Policy

Anyone who wishes to take photos at the Doncaster Centre will need to read and abide by this policy.

DLAC does not want to stop parents/carers from taking legitimate images of their own children for personal use, however there are restrictions. This policy has been introduced to protect Doncaster’s most valuable assets – our young athletes.

Please note only Officials and those on duty are allowed out on the track or the inside of the arena, so we must ask you to take your photos from the stands or from the outside of the track.
