Payment of Fees
Association of Running Clubs
Oxted Runners is affiliated to the Association of Running Clubs and this means that, inter alia, our club members can take part in ARC affiliated races and obtain a £2 discount on their entry fee. The races in question are listed on the ARC website.
Members wishing to affiliate to England Athletics in 2022 are required to add an additional £16 to their standard £35.00 Oxted Runners membership fee.
You will need to choose this option when making your membership payment
Membership of England Athletics brings a wide variety of benefits for members ranging from reduced entry fees for road races to discounts at Sweatshop and much more. Importantly, it enables you to opt to receive fortnightly bulletins on what is happening in the sport including essential information for athletes to know. To find out more visit the England Athletics Registration & Affiliation on the EA website.
Another benefit of membership is that the club receives a free place or places for entry to the following year’s London Marathon. The club normally holds its own ballot for these places at our annual Christmas party. Given the number of places awarded is dependent on the number of affiliated club members, only affiliated members – who have not been successful in the main London Marathon ballot – are invited to put forward their name into a club ballot.
If you are interested in running the London Marathon this may be another reason to become EA affiliated.
Holland Sports Athletic Club
We have a long history of involvement with a neighbouring club, Holland Sports Athletics Club (HSAC) and as a member of Oxted Runners, you also have the opportunity to become a member of HSAC on special concessionary terms. The annual membership is being offered at a reduced subscription of £30 (rather than the normal £65) per annum and in addition, the usual joining fee of £5 is waived. We are currently negotiating for use of the track at no additional charge for Oxted Runners Members. These sessions would be scheduled for the last Thursday in each month between February and May
Members of HSAC are also able to use the track at Mill Lane, Hurst Green at other times, subject to availability and take full advantage of the additional services on offer, such as specialist coaching and/or competition in the track & field and cross country leagues, as well as access to the club-house, bar and showers.
Then visit the Holland Sports Athletics Club website and complete the appropriate second claim membership form for either adults or juniors (which includes students in full time education up to the age of 21).
