Try before you buy!

You are welcome to try a few sessions before committing to joining the club. Why not come along, meet a few people, have a run and see if it’s for you. The best session to try is Wednesday evening’s Club night at the Beldams Lane clubhouse. We meet at 19:15 and go out at 19:30.  You won’t be left on your own as we always make sure everyone has someone to run with.

Each year we also run a beginners course which is a structured programme aimed at enabling beginners to run a 10K in only 10 weeks. Outside of that we can still help you get started in running.

Once you decide you like running with us and would like to join, please download the membership form and return to the Membership Secretary. Club membership in 2017 is £45 (on renewal there is a £5 discount for early payment). The membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March with a reduced rate available after September.

Membership fees are largely to cover our Clubhouse which offers:

  • Changing rooms with showers,
  • Licensed bar (open on Club night), function room and meeting room
  • Kitchen (open on Club night, providing hot food at very reasonable prices)
  • Cricket field, used for some of our coached training sessions

Membership benefits include an extensive programme of coaching sessions for running and also for biking and swimming (through our multisport section Stortford Tri), Club events and races,  personalised training plans, social functions and great people to run with.
