Joining Didsbury Runners

Didsbury Runners aims to be an open, inclusive, and encouraging club for all who wish to run and be active. It also has a strong volunteering ethos. We hope you will embrace these aims during your time with Didsbury Runners


Trial session

We encourage people to give us a try before they sign up. If you’d like to do this, just complete this short form and you’ll be eligible to attend one Monday evening run free of charge.


How to become a member

Membership is now available for the membership year 2024-25. Complete this form and be ready to complete payment at the end of the form. You may also register with England Athletics at the same time, but this is not compulsary, so if you end up on the England Athletics registration section but didn't want this, please press back in your browser.

The price for membership remains (as it was in 23-24) at £14. If you want England Athletics Registration as well, this attacts an additional £19 cost (so you would pay £31), but again, this is completely optional and you can sign up for it later.


Benefits and Activities of Membership

The following attempts to give an outline of the benefits and weekly activities the club normally is able to provide.


As a member of Didsbury Runners you will be free to attend at any point during the year with no minimum attendance required 

As a member you are eligible to:

  • attend all Didsbury Runners organised weekly runs (info on these can be found here)
  • attend all Didsbury Runners organised events and socials
  • be a member of the Didsbury Runners Members-only Facebook and Strava groups and thus access to the community organised runs and socials.
  • attend any general meeting including the AGM* and vote on club matters such as committee elections and membership fees.
  • Become Affiliated to England Athletics under the Didsbury Runners name (and join our cross-country team if you wish)
  • access discounts with Didsbury Runners affiliated organisations

 * note that the Annual General Meeting occurs in April, at the start of the membership year, so joining midway through a year will not present the opportunity to attend this until the following membership year.
