Membership costs explained
New members can join the club at anytime of the year and a receive a club running vest for either £45 or £60 (depending on time of year joining, see below)
Joining costs vary depending on the time of year you join, see full costs explained below.
You will need to renew your membership each year on 1 February at a cost of £25 for full members, £15 for second claim members and £10 for senior members (60+ with 5 years continuous membership) regardless of what time of year you joined.
We appreciate that joining later in the calendar year means you have to pay to join, then pay again to renew in February. But the club has to pay England Athletics a £13 fee upon your initial registration, then another £13 at renewal in February, so we unfortunately have to pass those costs onto members.
To try and mitigate this, the club can offer the special price that if you join between 1 October and 31 January you can choose to pay £60 for membership to February the year after next and still receive a club vest. So up to 16 months membership and vest for just £60.
Effective 1 February 2016 onwards, the club membership and renewal offerings are as follows:
- Joining between 1 Feb and 30 Sep – £45 (with vest), membership until 31 Jan the following year
- Joining between 1 Oct and 31 Jan – £60 (with vest), membership until 31 Jan the year after next
- Full member renewal – £25, due 1 Feb
- Second claim renewal – £15, due 1 Feb
- Senior citizen renewal (60+ with 5 years continuous membership) – £10, due 1 Feb
