Who can join?

With more than 900 members, there's a place for everyone in the Clapham Chasers - the club prides itself on being a sociable, inclusive and ambitious environment for members of all abilities.

We cater for the full range of abilities from novice through to those aspiring for elite (national) standard and pride ourselves on being very inclusive, supportive and sociable.

Want to try before you buy?

New starters are welcome to come along to one club session before joining. If you like the session and would like to come to further sessions then please join the club here.

First timers to the club:

  1. For our running sessions, please just turn up, no need to prearrange with us. Details of all sessions are on this website (see menu). For swimming and cycling sessions you may need to be a member to come along. 
  2. We are a friendly social bunch so don't worry about us being too serious.
  3. If you are unsure just ask for the session leader and they will explain the format.
  4. For run sessions at the Trinity Field clubhouse there is no admission charge, there are modest changing facilities however all personal possessions are left there at the owners risk.
  5. Please do not worry about speed/ability as our members are of mixed abilities.
  6. The only thing we ask is that you are comfortable with the distance of the session and that you are able to complete the course. 
  7. Once you are a member, join our Facebook group, which is the main hub for club notices, updates, news and chat.
  8. Most importantly: everyone is welcome!

How much does membership cost?

Two levels of membership are available depending on whether or not you choose to affiliate with England Athletics (EA). EA is the governing body for athletics in England.

The annual cost of membership is £23 or £38 depending on whether or not you affiliate with EA.

For further information on EA Affiliation and to help you decide if you wish to affiliate, please click here: England Athletics Affiliation.

Please Note: If you choose Membership with EA Affiliation, then we provide England Athletics with your personal data which they will use to enable access to an online portal for you (called myAthletics). England Athletics will contact you to invite you to sign into and update your MyAthletics portal (which, amongst other things, allows you to set and amend your privacy settings). If you have any questions about the continuing privacy of your personal data when it is shared with England Athletics, please contact dataprotection@englandathletics.org.

Are discounted rates available if I join part way through the year?

Our membership year runs from April to March.  After six months of the membership year, membership is pro-rata for any new joiners so you'll only pay for the months of the year where you are a member.  

And if you join in the final three months of the membership year you'll have the added benefit of your renewal not kicking in until April the following year, giving you three months free. 

Please contact membership secretary Cathryn Rees with any other questions.
