In the first instance, we suggest you contact one of the committee members or come along to one of our training evenings and introduce yourself in person so we can answer your questions about the club and let you know what it’s like to be a Thame Runner (see contact & training schedules sections of this website).
We also host an annual Thame Runners open evening for anyone who would like to come and find out about us. It’s an ideal opportunity to pull on your trainers for a training run with us either in a slow, medium or fast passed group, whichever you prefer and then to join us for a buffet & drinks.
You can continue to run with us on training evenings as a guest, just to get used to running with a club and once you’ve made up your mind about joining then you can fill in the New Members Form.
Thame Runners has become a club for people of all standards with one common aim in mind “to keep on running”. We only have to look at the record breaking number of people turning out for the CPM Thame 10k to see that grass roots running is thriving even in Thame and with it brings even better prospects for the future of the club.
How much does it cost to join?
The new membership rates are great value for money at only: £35 per annum for single membership, and £60 for joint/family membership. Membership subscriptions are the clubs’ main source of income, so prompt payment is very much appreciated.
Are Thame Runners Affiliated to a Governing Body?
Yes, Thame Runners are affiliated to 2 governing bodies: UK Athletics (UKA, affiliation number 2730649) and the Oxfordshire AA (OXONAA). The advantages affiliation are:
1) That Thame Runners will be part of the official UK structure covering the sport that we all love;
2) That the club and all of its members will be covered by a comprehensive third-party liability insurance policy;
3) That any member entering a race will be able to pay the reduced entry fee that applies to members of an affiliated club – usually a saving of £2.
