If you haven’t ran with us before, we recommend coming along for a few runs first. Then if you enjoy it, you can become a member. Membership runs from 1st April to 31st March. However, new members who join the club part way through the year will only pay a reduced amount according to the month in which you first join. If you have any questions about membership, please email our membership secretary, or come and have a chat on our Facebook group.

2) Pay the Fees

New members: 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.

Renewing: An automatic email will be sent from UK athletics to request payment on 1st April. Please follow the link in the email to pay your membership. You must ensure you pay your membership by the end of April, otherwise you will not be eligible for entry into the race leagues or London Marathon ballot places.

If you have any issues/questions, you can get in touch with our membership secretary, or come and have a chat on the BPJ Facebook group.

Membership Types

Standard membership is £25 a year and renewals are due each April. If you do not want the benefits of England Athletics affiliation, you can pay the basic membership fee of £15 to the club. This is more suited for runners who have no desire to take part in races.

If you join part-way through the year, the membership fees are reduced.
