Newent Runners are registered with Run England and affiliated to England Athletics. Membership is on an annual basis from 1st February to 31st January each year.
Due to legal considerations, membership is limited to those 17 years and over. Alternative age groups may be considered in the future but this depends on funding, personnel and safeguarding issues.
We have tried to come up with a system that looks after the interests of members, whilst being efficient and fair in terms of collection and administration. In doing this we have looked at what other clubs are doing and followed guidance from Run England; it is important to administer affiliation fees in a straightforward manner.
There is a flat fee of £20 for each member which will include affiliation fees (£15). This means we have held the membership rates for the fifth year running, as we wish to encourage new members and make it attractive to all runners in Newent and beyond. To keep it simple, we only have one type of membership, plus a second claim option (£10 if you are already affiliated with another running club). The fee is payable from 1st February each year, and the full fee applies if people join later in the year (i.e. no reduction for joining later in the year).
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
