Membership

Becoming a Sedgley Strider member couldn’t be easier.
However, please don’t feel obliged to join straight away.
Come along on any club night and meet the rest of the group.
You’ll be made very welcome.

We pride ourselves on having a friendly approach and welcome new members.

As and when you’re ready, download the membership form, fill it in and give to any of the run leaders.

Membership runs from 1st April each year.

For 2019/2020, the club membership is only £30 and this includes your registration with England Athletics.

The club will administer your application and you will receive a membership card from England Athletics along with access to the members area of the website.

There are numerous advantages to holding an England Athletics registration. You’ll get discounts on many runs and races that you enter throughout the year. Each month, you will be emailed an electronic athletics magazine, pack full of helpful tips and guidance. The members area of the website holds a wealth of free resources and offers.

As an athlete registered with England Athletics you have access to a range of benefits and offers, these are listed below:

  • Registered athletes are able to compete in events exclusively available to registered athletes. Under UKA Rules for Competition many competitions, particularly track and field, are only open to registered athletes
  • Discounted entry (minimum £2 for England Athletics registered athletes) to UKA licensed road races
  • Eligible to compete for your club in road races (rather than as unattached if unregistered)
  • Access to championship competitions for club athletes across numerous disciplines at a national, regional and local level
  • Eligibility to compete in national representative teams and at England Athletics age group level
  • Access to The Record newsletter from England Athletics, providing key information on the sport, including opportunities available to registered athletes. You can ensure your email address and mailing preferences are up to date by logging in to the myAthletics portal using the link at the top right of this page
  • Exclusive offers and discounts from a range of England Athletics’ commercial partners, including DW Fitness First, InterContinental Hotels Group and AfterShokz, via The Edge newsletter – these are only available to England Athletics’ registered athletes
  • The ability to have a say on how the sport is run and funded in a way that reflects your fundamental importance to the sport

Once you have your membership card, please bring it with you on club night as the run leaders for each group will be collecting them to help with run safety so that they know if anyone is still out running and not yet returned back to the base.

Remember, we also have a very active and social Facebook group where you can speak with anyone from the club.

Membership Forms for this year will be uploaded soon…..
