You may be a little daunted about the thought of joining a running club if you have never been a member before.  Don't be!  We have members of all ages, all abilities and all levels of commitment. Whatever your standards of fitness are,  You will be made very welcome.

The club is very friendly and social. Why not come along on a Thursday evening and give us a try (please note that you must be aged 18 to join the club).

This year, we are again using online website software, rather than paper membership forms.  Hopefully, you'll find it a simple process.  Please follow this link to sign up:  Any issues, please let Emma Nelson know (

Payment can be made by bank transfer - you can find bank details on the membermojo website. Using the online payment method will make the process quicker. If you are paying online use MSHIP, your initial and surname & MSHIP as a reference.
