Welcome to the Home of Radcliffe Athletic Club

Membership and fees

We normally suggest you try out the club for two 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.
