Membership/Track Fees 2018

A change to the current membership and track fees structure was approved at the AGM in November 2016, moving away from the current method of paying separate annual membership fees (including the EA fee) and monthly or weekly track fees to a simpler all-inclusive monthly fee (payable by standing order) to include all these elements.

These changes would only affect track users, members who are solely road runners or only occasional track users will continue with the current structure of an annual membership fees and, if relevant, pay-as-you-go track fees.

Rates for 2018/19 are as follows (incl. the EA Fee which is rising to £15.00 on the 1st April 2018)

Ages as at 31st August Per month Annual Cost
Under 11 £10 £120
Junior 11 – 16 £13 £140
Unaged Senior (age 17 and over) £13 £140
Senior/Vets (age 17 and over) £13 £140
Comments (All monthly fees to be paid by standing order on the 1st of the month)
Includes track fees which covers all training evenings (plus any additional sessions arranged by coaches and advised direct to athletes), club membership and EA affiliation fee.
When a waiting list is in operation if junior members do not attend for 6 weeks without advising the coach, they forfeit their membership and if relevant go onto the waiting list if they wish to re-join. There will be discretion for the committee to use in exceptional circumstances.
Off Track
Ages as at 31st August Annual Cost
Senior/Vets (age 17 and over) £27.50
For non-track users, eg, road runners. For occasional use of the track they would pay the standard £3.00 fee.
Training Fees

Road Running training is free although some groups run a voluntary contribution scheme.

When training on the County Ground track fees are payable to cover the track hire payable to the Council. There are a number of ways of paying these:

  • For 'Track' members - included in the monthly fee paid
  • For 'Off Track' members - £3.00 per session
  • For Non-Members - £5.00 per session
    • New starters would only be able to pay the Non-Members track fee for 5 weeks after their initial free week, they will then be required to join the Club at that time.
    • For visiting athletes, the non-member rate would be on-going
