Due to legal considerations, membership is limited to 17 years and over. Alternative age groups may be considered in the future but this depends on funding, personnel and safeguarding issues. The club is registered with Run England and affiliated to UK Athletics.
Membership is on an annual basis from 1st February to 31st January each year.
We have tried to come up with a system that looks after the interests of members, whilst being the most efficient and fair system in terms of collection and administration. In doing this we have looked at what other clubs are doing and guidance from Run England; the issue of affiliation fees is important to sort out in an uncomplicated way.
There is a flat fee of £20 for each member which will include affiliation fees (which have increased to £16). This means we have for the fourth year running reduced the membership fee to join the club (down to £4), as we wish to encourage new members and make it attractive to all runners in Newent and beyond. To keep it simple we will not be doing family membership. We will have one flat fee which is payable from 1st February each year and the full fee will apply if people join later in the year (i.e. no reduction for joining later in the year). To join as a new member or renew your membership please can you do the following:
– Download the membership form below (you will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Edge)
– Print (we require a paper copy).
– Complete the form – Please ensure that all information is completed and clearly written, especially your email address.
– Please return all forms and fee if cash or cheque to myself either at the club or via the postal address on the form.
(If you have any problems downloading the forms please email firstname.lastname@example.org and copies will be emailed to you. Alternatively, paper copies will be available at Training Night).
