Membership

Kesgrave Kruisers requires runners to register as members of the club. Membership enables us to determine an accurate count for club insurance purposes. Members can provide feedback on what they want from the club; frequency and type of improver groups, different training sessions; intervals, track, hills etc. Members can provide information during registration that will help the club take care of their welfare; such as emergency contact details. Members can be identified for access to club services and events.

Note: Kesgrave Kruisers committee extended the 2020 to 2021 membership year from 12 months to 18 months due to missed sessions during Covid lockdown. The committee have decided that the 2021 membership will also run for 18 months, from now until 31st March 2023. This extension will allow us to realign future membership years with when we see our main club expenditures on insurance, website etc. Due to the extended membership year the new price per adult will be increased to £5. The price for junior membership remains at £1.

Membership Information

One of the key principles of Kesgrave Kruisers has been a low barrier to entry, and our intent is that this is reflected in our low cost of membership. Our new membership ‘year’ will run from September 2021 until 31st March 2023 – so potentially 19 months! Membership costs £5 per adult (16+) and members can include up to four juniors on their membership for an additional £1 per junior (under 16).

For regular runners the club offers a prepayment discount on the £1 Tuesday session fees. The prepayment can be purchased along with membership for just £33 for the entire membership period (from now until 31st March 2023). This represents a saving of up to £45 compared to paying weekly. Note: it will still be possible to pay the £1 at individual Tuesday sessions if that is your preference, or purchase the prepayment option after having become a member. The prepayment price will be discounted during the course of the membership period, to reflect the reduced number of Tuesday sessions remaining.

Those who are already members of other running clubs (including affiliated running clubs) are welcome to join Kesgrave Kruisers – there is zero impact to your affiliation status, as we are not a UKA affiliated club.

Guests – any existing member can bring any number of guests with them to a session – perfect for visiting friends and family.
Trials – runners are welcome to attend Kruisers sessions on a trial basis for up to 3 sessions, before deciding whether to join as a member.
For sessions held at Kesgrave War Memorial Community Centre or at the Northgate track we request that Guest and Trial runners also contribute the £1 venue fee, and we may ask Guest and Trial runners to sign a form at the start of the session.
