Membership is £45 for the England Athletics season, which runs from April-March. This includes £17 that goes directly to England Athletics for your affiliation and entitles you to a £2 discount on races licensed by Run Britain. There are no other fees. New members of all abilities are welcome - we offer a trial period to see if you like it before we ask you to join the club.
To help facilitate the running of the club, we ask members to take a turn doing 'desk duty', which simply means keeping an eye on the club room so people can leave keys/bags/etc safely while others go out to run. We have enough members that you only need to do it once or twice a year - and often someone who is injured will step in to cover it. Please volunteer when the membership secretary fills out the calendar.
Club nights are Tuesday and Thursday and we aim to be ready to run after the announcements at 7:30pm. You can leave keys/bags/etc in the club room while you run, as someone will be on 'desk duty' to keep an eye on things. A Learn2Run leader will be present on every club night to take out beginners. On Tuesdays, there is usually a coached session for runners of all abilities if you wish to take part. On all nights, there are various groups running at different paces and distances (including social runs) so you will easily find someone to run with. If in doubt, don't hesitate to speak to a committee member!
Sunday Social Runs
Sunday runs start at 9am from various locations within Havering and nearby villages of Essex. These are published on the club calendar and advertised on our Facebook 'H90 Chat' page. Sunday runs offer a mixture of road and trail running from popular locations with suitable parking and post-run refreshments. Sunday runs have a 'nobody left behind' policy, so are suitable for runners of all ability levels and are a great opportunity to get to know people in a more social setting. We recommend getting to the Sunday runs for 8:45, as the runs leave at 9am prompt. See the calendar for upcoming runs.
Other Runs, Socials & Activities
Members often arrange other social or training runs amongst themselves, we have a large and welcoming group of runners. Although not organised by the club, some of these are regular fixtures and often include members of other clubs. Once you are a member, you will have access to our social channels and can get involved.
The official club colours are blue with yellow logo. If you take part in a race, you should wear your club colours. This is a general England Athletics rule, but also helps to promote the club and makes it easier for runners and spectators to spot each other at races.
Official club kit is available from the 'SHOP' Here you will find vests, t-shirts and long-sleeve shirts made of technical fabrics in club colours. There are also 'hi-vis' yellow options for training runs, as well as padded jackets and rain jackets and other club-related items. Please speak to the kit secretary for further details.
