New Starters

We do not request membership from any new starter until 1 month after their first session. This is to allow any potential new member time to try out the club and make sure it is right for them before committing to a years membership fee.

Club Membership runs from 1st January to December 31st and is due by the 31st January each calendar year. New members are accepted all year round.

To become a member of Ystrad Runners you will need to complete an application form and pay an annual fee of £40. You can complete the application form online with the form below or request a paper copy from one of our coaches.

The fee can be paid in cash/cheque and shall be given to any of the Committee/Coaches at a club training session. Alternatively you can pay online by bank transfer by requesting bank details from our Treasurer when applying for membership.

Membership benefits include:

  • Welsh Athletics Athlete Registration, which includes insurance cover to protect you whilst you take part in the sport, £10 off entry to the Cardiff University Cardiff Half Marathon, and a £2 discount on race entry fees across a number of licenced road race events;
  • Ystrad Runners Club T-shirt or Vest;
  • Two weekly organised club training sessions; and
  • Personal Profiling by a dedicated coach to help you achieve your goals.

Our current policy is to not sign up under 16's as full members.

Under 16's are permitted to run with us during sessions/events, but under the strict condition that they are accompanied by their parent/guardian at all times and they remain the responsibility of their parents/guardians.
