Membership Fees

Please see the Member Benefits page.


Members joining from April to September will pay the Full Membership fee of £41.00.

This is inclusive of affiliation to Welsh Athletics.

A Club Vest is available at a subsidised cost of £5 initially, replacement vests will cost £20.

Members joining from October to December will receive a discount of 25% off the Full Membership fee excluding the Welsh Athletics affiliation cost.

Members joining from January to March will pay the Full Membership fee but this will carry on to March of the following financial year.

(Please note that due to the terms of our constitution you must be at least 18 on the day of joining.)


Your annual membership renewal is due in March.

The price is £41.00 and the club must receive this no later than 31 March please.

WA affiliation will be void if not paid on time.

The Membership Secretary will not chase for payments, it is Members' responsibility to pay promptly. 

Members who haven't renewed by 1 June will cease to be members of the Club and their WA affiliation will be void.

Those who renew after June will be charged the full membership fee plus an additional re-joining fee of 25% of that fee.

We strongly advise Members to set up a standing order so renewal is not forgotten. 

Please remember to give the Membership Secretary your current email, phone number and postal address.

Associate membership is also available for those who are no longer running at £10 per year.

This too needs to be paid in March and the Membership Secretary informed.

Student membership - Members who are in full-time education will be entitled to a refund of 50% of the fee paid (excluding the fee paid to Welsh Athletics). This refund will be given on the production of proof of their student status e.g. a photocopy of a current student identity card.

To join please complete an online New Membership Application form, payment methods are detailed below.

All members are drawn to the attention of the UK Athletics rules, an edited copy is available here, focussing on the rules that apply specifically to our Club.

Club Safety Guidelines

The following advice is intended to keep our runners SAFE at all times!
It is also essential that, whilst out running as a club, we are seen to be polite, responsible, set a good example & not put others at risk.
AT ALL TIMES BE SAFE BE SEEN! You can never be too visible! During the day, always wear bright or light-coloured clothing - fluorescent is good.
At night we would strongly recommend that people ALWAYS wear light-coloured clothing plus a REFLECTIVE (not just fluorescent) bib or sash.
Clip on flashers are a great way to be seen. NEVER ASSUME YOU'VE BEEN SEEN. Always be cautious with traffic.
We would like to remind people that they are responsible for their own safety and that they run at their own risk.
