Club Membership

Whether you are an experienced runner, complete novice or anywhere inbetween, you are very welcome to join us. If you want to come and run with us before making a decision - no problems - give us a try for free.


We have a large membership, especially for a local runnng club and a corresponding wide range of abilities which includes qualified coaches. You will find people of similar abilities, potential and targets to match yours - whether to run your first race, a full marathon or simply run socially.


Our members are drawn from all over the Wakefield Metropolitan District and beyond - more live outside Ackworth than in it!


You're welcome to join us!

What is the cost?

Your only outlay is an annual subscription of £28.00 per year, payable every January. Of this amount, the Club pays a Registration fee of £16 to UK Athletics (major benefit being a £2 discount of race entry costs).


The Club pays for the cost of hiring training facilities in Ackworth.
