Membership

You need to try us out for free before joining. Use the Contact Us page to get in touch.  After trying us out, we'll send you joining information.

For the club year 2023-24, membership fees are...

  • £40 standard membership
  • £20 social membership (no running)
  • £20 vet  membership (age 70+)

We also subsidise England Athletics affiliation by £7 so you pay £10 not the full £17 (affiliation is optional).

Membership of BVR has a number of benefits:

  • Membership is 100% online! No more filling out paper membership forms, you can join and pay your annual subs online.
  • Wednesday night club runs, speed training, hill sessions and weekend runs.
  • Full support from qualified coaches and many experienced runners
  • Race discount (typically £2) when you enter Association of Running Clubs (ARC) permit events as an ‘attached’ runner
  • 10% discount from most running shops in the local area
  • Compete in the free monthly MABAC league events
  • Access to the BVR private Facebook group for runners in the UK
  • Access to the private BVR Strava group for runners
  • The annual subscription includes the fee for associate membership of Aldershot Cricket Club. This entitles you (and guest) to use the bar facilities whenever the bar is open

  • Subsidised affiliation fee via BVR
  • Race discount (typically £2) when you enter British Athletics permit events as an ‘attached’ runner and are able to run as BVR
