Membership

As a club member, you’ll become eligible for placings and prize money after running six races as a member. You can become a club member at any time, you don’t need to have run with us before.

Fees

Fees to run as a club members are:

  • annual membership (fees in table below, paid by selecting button above. Fees are reduced for registrations from 1st July.)
  • timing chip purchase (also paid above, $15 just once and keep the chip from year to year), and
  • weekly race fees (standard $10 per race; students/pensioners $8 per race) – see below.

How to pay weekly race fees

The race fee can be paid up to 20 minutes before the scheduled race start time (usually 9 am). You can pay race fees online, or by card in-person at the van at the race.

Alternatively, you can prepay race fees when you pay your annual membership. This works out to be a discount if you run 18 or more races for the season.
