Choosing Your Membership

NFRC is a UK Athletics affiliated club recognised by the Fell Runners Association and England Athletics for the disciplines of Fell, Road, Trail and Cross Country.

If you wish to be a full member of the club including the option to represent the club as a competing member in Fell races please join as a Full Member.

You may optionally register with England Athletics (EA) at the same time for an additional £16 which is passed to EA on your behalf.

Northern Fells Running Club encourages all members to join the Fell Runners Association (FRA). Membership of the FRA has a number of benefits as well as supporting our great sport:

  • You receive the Annual handbook and Fixtures Calendar
  • You receive the Fellrunner magazine – three per year (this is the fell runner bible!)
  • You get prioritised entry to English Champs races, and discounted prices for many others
  • You get discount with FRA sponsors/partners

Membership is £16 per year for a senior (family, junior and life memberships are also available). You can join the FRA here: Join the FRA

Q: Do I need to be a member of the FRA to compete in Fell races?

No, but we very much encourage you to join. Benefits include discounts and preferential entry for increasing numbers of races, and an excellent magazine.

Q: Do I need to be registered with England Athletics (EA) to compete in Fell races?

No. However, members wishing to compete for the club in Road or Cross-country races may need to be a member of EA. Note that many road races are commercial events which do not require any memberships. Please check the race-specific competition rules.

Q: What about for the English Championship series?

To participate in the Championships you must be either a member of the FRA or registered with England Athletics.

Q: What if I don’t want to race and only want to run socially?

Many members prefer to enjoy fell running without entering races; we welcome everyone who enjoys getting out on the fells.

The Annual Membership period commences 1st April. If you join between 1st Jan – 31st March, your NFRC membership will last until the end of the following membership year.  However, EA do not offer a grace period and any EA fees are due every 1st April.
