    • Free participation and entry for the RR10 series of Road and Trail Events
    • Participation in our active WhatsApp community
    • Membership of our Strava group

    But most of all, we provide a community where you will feel supported to become the runner you want to become. 

    Becoming a Member

    If you are interested in joining, we recommend you come to one of our weekly training sessions to meet other members and get a feel for the club.  

    So that we can make sure there is someone looking out for you, please email membership@winchesterrunningclub.org.uk to let us know which session(s) you plan to attend, and we will make sure that you are expected.

    If, after three sessions, you want to join the club or want to compete in club events, then you will need to complete our registration process and pay an annual subscription fee.


    In determining appropriate fees for the, we have to consider the costs of establishing the club, the need to establish a reserve, an unpredictable number of members, uncertainty over facilities, and affiliation fees. 

    Membership Types

    Membership fees  for 2024/25 are as follows:

    • Standard – £60 (equiv od £5 per month)
    • Student – £45 (25% discount) 

    Student memberships are available to anyone in full-time education or training. 

    Membership Year

    Our membership year is from 1st April to 31 March. Membership fees are due in full on 1st April. Membership fees will be prorated for new joiners and those joining during March will be charged for a full year with membership through to the end of the next March.

    England Athletics Affiliation Fee

    All members must be affiliated with England Athletics, for which a separate fee is charged annually and can not be pro-rated. This fee is usually charged or included in the membership fee of your First Claim club and should only be paid to one England Athletics club in any membership year. So, if you are joining Winchester Running Club mid-year and have already affiliated with another club, we will not need to charge you.

    • England Athletics Affiliation (2024/25) – £19

    Subscription Support

    Winchester Running Club does not believe anyone’s financial circumstances should prevent them from being the runner they want to be. Please contact us to discuss alternatives if you wish to join but cannot afford these fees.
