Membership Categories

We have three categories of membership.

First Claim

Current rate of £33 for 2022.

This includes affiliation to England Athletics for Road Running, Cross Country, Hill & Fell Running and Track & Field.  You will also be affiliated to Northern Athletics.

Second Claim 

Current rate of £15 for 2022 for runners with First Claim membership of another club.

You will be able to compete as a Valley Strider in team events that your first club do not enter. However, some races are only open to first claim members (Yorkshire, Northern and National Championships).


Current rate of £40 for 2022. A reduced rate of £20 is available for a maximum of 10 junior sessions. Places are limited so contact us for availability.

Social membership is available at £5 per year for existing members who no longer compete or train.  Parents of juniors may also join as social members if they occasionally run whilst the junior session takes place.
