Membership and Fees

We normally suggest you try out the club for 2 weeks before joining to make sure it is a good fit for you. We welcome all abilities and our sessions range from beginners to competitive running. We recommend that you have the ability to run at least 2/3 miles for our beginners’ session.

After the two weeks we would require you to take up membership with the club. We have three levels of membership, Premium, Standard and Social/Second claim. All our membership options include insurance via England Athletics.
