New Member Contacts
Under 18s: Helen Pepper
18 & over: Simon Mennell (track & field)
Philip Wood (road running)
NOTE: Due to corona virus, we regret that inductions for prospective new members under 18 are postponed until at least May 2021. By all means contact us but the following paragraphs apply to the U18s only once the corona virus threat has retreated.
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 (£5 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 should contact us as above. We welcome all disciplines but have a specific specific “All abilities” group meeting at 7:15 on Thursdays. If this is of interest, contact Simon Mennell.
New athletes pay a one-off joining fee of £20. This includes a club vest which must be worn when competing for the club.
