As a Club, we are committed to offering membership to the widest possible range of runners, as long as they meet our running standard. However, we are a small club and work on an informal basis, with run leaders selected from those members running on each Club night. All our run leaders are experienced runners, but only some of them have completed the training and checks necessary for leading runs whose participants include children and vulnerable adults. Our overriding concern and duty is to provide a safe environment for all our members. Regrettably, this means that at present we are unable to accept applications for membership from children and vulnerable adults. We will continue to keep the situation under review.
