How to join
We at Thanet Road runners welcome new membership throughout the year from juniors to veterans of varying abilities, any race or social background. If you want to be involved in an enjoyable sport, get fit, try to be an Olympic athlete, or just run for fun, then come and join Thanet Roadrunners. Getting involved is straightforward. Simply come along to a training session; there's no need to join first. Try us out and then make your decision
Becoming a club member is incredibly cheap.
Please pay attention especially sections relating to membership of England Athletics!
Fill in a membership form. Please remember to tick at least one event that you are willing to help out at. If you do not, your membership form may be returned to you.
If you wish to be a member of England Athletics, also fill in an England Athletics form. This is not required of social runners, but is required for people wishing to compete in certain championship races.
If applying by post, write a cheque made payable to Thanet Roadrunners AC for the approppriate amount and put this and the membership form into an envelope addressed to the Membership Secretary. If applying in person to one of the club officials, either have a cheque or cash to the correct amount (we can't be expected to have changed) and hand it over.
Your membership will be processed. It will usually be necessary for a club meeting or committee meeting to take place for your membership to be officially registered. You cannot claim to be a member of the club until this has happened.
If you have asked to be EA affiliated, an application for membership of England Athletics will be made on your behalf.
You will receive a membership pack and card. You can now enter races as an member of Thanet Roadrunners AC. However, officially you must wait until you are registered with England Athletics to claim affiliated membership for races and not pay the day membership levy of EA affiliated races. Unfortunately, this has been taking some time. Last year it took over 3 months for members to get their membership cards and numbers. We can only hope it improves this year.
