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 £25 for each member which will include affiliation fees (£19). This means we have increased the membership rates by £2 in accordance with the England Athletics affiliation fees, we hope the rate still encourages new members and makes it attractive to all runners in Newent and beyond. 

This year, we have a new option of paying for your year’s worth of training sessions with your membership fee (Membership with Training).  This would be an additional cost of £40 to cover your £1 a week Wednesday night sessions – so you’d be saving around £10 a year over paying weekly.  This would save us all having to scrabble around for £1 coins each week, and simplify the process for the treasurer!  This method of paying is optional – you’re more than welcome to carry on paying in cash each week you attend, if you prefer.

A second claim option is £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).

We also require a medical form to be completed if you have any medical conditions, allergies, or medications that we should know about.  As per the membership form you can complete this electronically, or download a PDF copy to print below.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Kind Regards
