How do I join?
Newcastle Frontrunners welcomes new members and being in a club has many benefits compared to running alone, including structured training, discounted race entry and social activities. We are a running club, and so you will need to be able to run a minimum amount before you can come along to take part in our Wednesday session which is open to trial members. You get two free runs with the club on a Wednesday before you must decide to either join or not. Our other sessions that take place on a Monday or any other time are open to members only.
The club offers runs from 1 mile in place of a Coach to 5k programme. Therefore you need to be able to run 1 mile non-stop at a slow pace to take part. If you are not able to do that, we would recommend you look at doing a Couch to 5k programme building up to running a mile before coming along. There are several local organisations that offer this or you can download a C25K app on your smartphone.
If you are ready to join, please drop us a line on our contacts page and we will answer any questions you have and send you a simple registration form.
We currently have a waiting list for new runners with the club and will message when you when we are able to accommodate you on one of our Wednesday runs.
Standard Membership Fee
£36 per year
Standard Membership entitles you to join us at all our weekly sessions, with qualified Run Leaders and Coaches looking after you. Full annual membership also lets you benefit from discounts on individual England Athletics certified races, as well as full voting rights, and rights of comment on all aspects of the club as well as access to the Club's TeamApp.
Our membership year is 1st April-31st March, with a portion of the fee being paid to England Athletics which currently stands at £15
Second Claim Membership Fee
£21 per year
The same benefits as for Standard Membership except the club does not register or pay the England Athletics Fee.
Pay As You Go
£2 per session
If you decide that membership isn’t for you, then simply pay £2 every time you come along for a run on a Wednesday. You will, unfortunately miss out on all the great membership benefits though which include participating in our Monday sessions and Leader Led & ad hoc runs, Grand Prix, XC and you won’t be entitled to buy our club kit.
We still ask that you complete our online runner form to inform us of your emergency contact information.
Please note: Pay As You Go membership is currently unavailable.
