Membership subscriptions for 2023 are now due. All the information you need is here.
Membership income is essential to pay for coach training, clubhouse maintenance, the all-weather surface and to ensure you are insured for club activities. Your committee and coaching team has a great year ahead planned so prompt payment would be appreciated.
We ask everyone to fill in a membership form and return it as part of their renewal. This means we have up to date emergency details and contact preferences and your agreement to abide by the UK Athletics Code of Conduct.
Membership gives you access to:
Weekly club training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings
Club runs through the forest on Sunday mornings
Free entry to Chingford and Essex Cross-Country Leagues in winter
Free entry to club hosted races such as the Ware Cup, club championships and midsummer relays
Free entry to Essex, Southern and National championship events (subject to eligibility, some events require EA affiliation)
Fun social events such as Christmas Lights runs and all-age strawberry and cream relays
Friendly advice and mutual support, whatever your standard
Extra benefits available to England Athletics affiliated members (see below)
When renewing your membership you can opt in to England Athletics affiliation. This is recommended for anyone who wants to compete in championship races, benefit from discounted entry to many commercial races and the Essex Grand Prix series, or see their performances appear on the Power of 10 or Run Britain rankings website. You can find further information on the England Athletics website.
Details of how to pay are included on the membership form. If paying by BACS please use SUB Your Name as the reference so the Treasurer can identify your payment.
If you have any queries please contact our Membership Secretary, Jon Whitehouse.
