Membership year 2021-2022

We are currently working on the membership/renewal system for 2021-2022. This is not yet ready; please bear with us. We’re hoping to launch for April.

This information below is for reference at this stage. Do not attempt to renew yet.

 


Subscriptions are now due, there follows though a few notes on the process…

  1. Every member will be registered with England Athletics – whether you are a competing member or not (e.g., a social member)
  2. Note that a family membership is made up of two competing members and two non-competing members.
  3. If you have bought a family membership but have more than 2 that want to compete additional competing members can be added at £16 each
  4. For 2021, unlike 2020 we are asking everyone to complete a full set of details for the application process.
  5. Your registration card/details will be sent via email by England Athletics direct to you, this will happen sometime in April/May.
  6. Every member can go online and update their details on the England Athletics website.
  7. Once again as in previous years you must separately complete and submit your details and also then pay.
  8. The membership year runs from 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022.

For those new to running you should ensure you are in good health and consult your GP if necessary. Always make sure you wear suitable running shoes.

Tuesday Club Training

Adult members meet weekly on Tuesday evenings at 18:45 at Brackenbury Sports Centre, High Road East, Old Felixstowe, please check the calendar for the schedule.

Our club training sessions are suitable for all abilities, fast or slow, generally starting with a mile warm-up followed by a speed, hill or ‘fun’ session. Following a cool down run back to Brackenbury the night is finished with a stretching session. Anyone coming along should be able to cover a minimum of a couple of miles but speed is not important.

Visitors and prospective members are invited to join us for one or two Tuesday Club Trainings to try it out before we ask that they sign up as full members.

Prospective and new members are suggested to contact the Membership Secretary for more information membership@frr.org.uk.

Wednesday Junior Club Training

The club also has a very active junior section who meet every Wednesday evening at 18:15 at Brackenbury Sports Centre, High Road East, Old Felixstowe.

Please contact the Junior Coaching Team for more information.

Friday Track Training

We hold track training sessions approximately once per month, where the race calendar and coach availability allows. Dates are published on the calendar and in our FRR Facebook Group when they’re confirmed.

These sessions help to develop speed, but are suitable for all abilities. Depending on coach availability, they are often open to our junior members also (subject to parental supervision)
