We've compiled a list of FAQs that we receive from new members, but if you do have any other questions please feel free to contact one of the club captains (details found on the Contact Us page)

Membership costs £16 per year, which covers you for the membership year from April to March. Members joining after the mid-year (i.e. between October and March) pay £8. Anyone over the age of 70 when joining or renewing pays nothing for membership (but must still register by completing the form below).

Optional affiliation to England Athletics costs an additional £16 per year. The affiliation year runs from April to March. Affiliation comes with the benefit of discounts off race entries (typically £2) and is a pre-requisite for entering national competitions, e.g. 12 Stage Road Relays, and the club’s London Marathon ballots. The cost remains the same throughout the year and there is no reduction for over 70s.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
