Existing Membership fees are due on the 1st January 2018 – the 2018 fee is £25 (an increase of £1). English Athletics fee have increased their fee by £1 to £15 and Danum Harriers membership is still £10 for the year (frozen at this price for the fourth year running).

Cheques payable to Danum Harriers
Affliliation to English Athletics:
Affiliation is part of the club membership fee. This will be paid over to English Athletics in April.
Members are all encouraged to pay your fee in January & February. If members are not paid by the end of March your membership will be terminated on the 1st April and you will not be re-registered with English Athletics.
If you join the club from November onwards you will receive 14 months membership for the price of 12 months. However you will not receive your English Athletics registration before April unless you ask for it specifically. If you request your English Athletics membership before then you will have to pay both 2017 & 2018 fees. Club members pay at least £2 less than runners unattached to a running club.
Pretty soon guys we will be losing the light so will be running on the roads again. However, here are things to look forward to as the darker nights descend on us.
1. Monthly 5km Time Trials – first one 10 Oct (through to March)
2. Hares and Hounds Runs – our signature ‘pursuit’ run, a right burn up but good fun too.
3. Tarmac – yes believe it or not some people do actually prefer it
4. Head Torch Trail Runs – Local trails and away runs with the head torches, normally one a month. Kev has a few spares but if you want to buy one he recommends looking on EBay or Amazon for Cree Head Torches. This one is similar to Kev’s and really is good.
Hi all, after discussing it with the committee, we have come to the conclusion that it might be better to run the Time Trials in the ‘Winter’ months, leaving the ‘Summer’ months to run mainly off road.
The next one 10 Oct is still on as it does not appear to clash with any major races so we will do that one and carry on through to March.
Dates then for your diaries:
10 Oct, 14 Nov, 19 Dec, 9 Jan, 13 Feb, 13 March
Just a reminder that our Group 4 for slower runners is still going strong every Tuesday and Thursday and is an ideal introduction to club running for those considering the next step up from running alone or at the weekly park run.
First few runs free so just turn up, but if you require more info email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
