Athletic Club

Club Membership

Please Note: 2019 membership was due for renewal on 1st Feb 2019 and should be paid by the end of Feb. There is some very important information in the Membership Secretary’s letter from the committee regarding the application of the rule about ‘competing three times for the club’ and getting your coach to sign your membership form before it is returned. See ‘forms’ below for the letter and application form.

New Member Contacts

Under 18s: Sara Wright
18 & over: Claire Gordon

NOTE: All new under-18 athletes who wish to join MUST contact us at the track or by e-mail as above as they need to attend a compulsory induction session prior to commencing training (During the summer months, when athletics is very popular, there may be a waiting list to get booked on to an induction). This includes a chat and warm up session with one of our lead coaches followed by a free training session. One of our volunteers will give a brief talk about the club and answer any questions there may be.

After you have experienced a couple of further training sessions (£3 fee per night applies as below), to become a member you just need to complete both a Membership Form and a Vest Order Form which can be found below and hand them in, together with your membership and joining fees, to our Membership Secretary or someone at the entrance to the track.

Over-18s interested in joining may contact us as above or just turn up at the track on one of our track evenings 15 minutes before session start.  We welcome all disciplines but have a specific “New to Running” group at 7pm on Thursdays. If this is of interest, just turn up or for more information, contact Roadrunning@braintreeanddistrictac.co.uk.
