You can run the course as many times as you like during that week and then send the fastest time.

Mental Health Awareness Week: 18 – 24 May

Club membership

Membership renewal payment will NOT be on 1 April this year, so your current membership will remain active until the renewal does happen. This is partly due to the current coronavirus situation but also because we are working to move our membership system to one provided by England Athletics (EA) and we need to do further work to set it up and test. This work should be completed before the end of April, so we will contact you again later this month with further plans about this year’s membership payment.
