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 represent the club in any competitive event of any running discipline you must join as a Competing Member.  If you only wish to join for social runs and social events or to generally support the club you can join as a Social Only member.

If you only wish to represent the club as a competing member in Fell races (races run under FRA rules) and no other discipline then please join as a ‘Fell Runner Only’.

If you wish to represent the club in Fell and also Road, Trail or Cross Country races (races run under UK Athletics rules) then please join as ‘All Disciplines’: £15 of the club fee pays for England Athletics membership and you will receive a EA membership card.

Junior members under 11yrs may compete in any discipline and do not need to pay a EA fee.

Junior ages are based on the age on the day of the race/event.  If a Junior is becoming 12 or 18 respectively mid-way through membership, please contact the club and the membership will be transferred for you.

NFRC do not provide a Second Claim membership category. If you are already a First Claim member of another club and wish to join and represent NFRC for disciplines that your original First Claim club does not support, then please join as ‘First Claim Other’.  For example, if your original club does not support Fell running then joining as ‘First Claim Other’ means you will be able to represent NFRC in Fell races.

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.
