We're delighted you're interested in joining Cirencester Athletic and Triathlon Club. Membership gives you plenty of benefits:
There is an option to be affiliated to England Athletics or to have non-affiliation.
Being affiliated gives you annual membership of EA, enabling you to run in races under the name of your club i.e. Cirencester AC. This also gives you a discount on your race entry price, as well as many other benefits. If you are unaffiliated, you can enter races independant of the club, but you may have problems entering some X country and certain road races, " also your achievements would not be included in any club listings or reports ". In short - if you intend to enter races, it would be best to be an affiliated member.
Training sessions are set up and run by fully trained club coaches throughout the year.
Hire of a running track for adults during the summer months, and a sports field and sports hall for juniors year round.
Use of showers at Cotswold Leisure Centre before and after training sessions throughout the year.
10% discount at D&J Sports in Cirencester.
An army of volunteers running the club on your behalf, arranging races to help generate income for the club.
A Social Committee putting on various activities for all members.
