New members are always welcome, and our inclusive approach caters for a wide range of ages and abilities. You don't have to live near to the Howgills but obviously it is an advantage if you want to take part in our weekly training sessions. Feel free to come along to these for a few weeks first before you decide if Howgill Harriers are right for you.
Membership subscription runs from April - March. Members who join in January /Feb/March will have their basic membership extended to March of the following year.
Please note that EA annual membership also runs from April-March. therefore members requiring EA membership who join in Jan/Feb/March will have their payment to EA delayed until april to give them a full year.

Free Access to Weekly Training Events
Many clubs charge a fee every time you turn up to train. Howgill Harriers do not charge members for any outdoor training session, and it is only in the Winter indoor sessions when we ask for a small contribution to cover the cost of booking the venue. Visitors and those who want to try us out for a few weeks are welcome to the same benefit for a reasonable time .
England Athletics registration number and competition licence
This is required at some events and if you select this as part of your membership Howgill Harriers will apply for this on your behalf. Junior members selecting this option are subsidised by the club.
Access to club places/draws in major races
For certain events, such as the London Marathon, clubs are granted a small number of places for their members. Please note, priority for London Marathon places will go to those who have applied to the initial ballot.
Free entry to specific Howgill Harriers Races
Members are usually granted one or two free places in events we put on. This can vary dependent on a number of factors. Races such as the Christmas Handicap are also free, members-only events.
