Once you have filled in the membership form you will receive an email from UK athletics to request payment. This is sent once the membership secretary has processed your membership form, so may take a week or so (you can still run with the club in the meantime). Please follow the link in the email to pay your membership.
Your group leader is a volunteer who has agreed to set the pace and distance for the run and requires your support to ensure the safety of the group. Please be guided by your leader. Failure to do so could result in your membership being cancelled.
Remember to think about safety, not just when crossing roads but also when running over uneven land, in dusk or in the dark conditions. Wearing fluorescent/high visibility clothing is recommended. In the event of someone becoming injured a minimum of 2 people must stay with the injured member until help arrives.
If you are new to exercise or have not exercised for some time you are recommended to visit your doctor before running with the club. Please read the club’s Health & Safety policy and Risk Assessments on the website for further guidance: www.blackpearjoggers.org.uk
