We know joining a club can be a bit daunting, but we’re a friendly and welcoming bunch, and always delighted to see new faces. We’re based at Glasgow Ski Centre in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow. See our Running pages for up to date information on when we meet, and do bear in mind our minimum requirements outlined here. The minimum age for joining our club is 18.
What to expect
We’re a friendly bunch, but it’s always a bit daunting coming along to something for the first time. Aim to get to the ski centre for about 6.15, and find the committee members taking fees: speak to anybody who looks like a runner and they’ll point you in the right direction.
Somebody will explain the setup to you and which group makes sense for you to start with. Your first night is free, after that it’s £1 per night. You’re encouraged to become a member after a few weeks.
To become a member please enter you details and pay the fee using our online membership system at this link.
Fees are £20 per year, although the first year is £30 and this includes the cost of your club vest. After 1st March each year we move to half year fees (50% membership fee) until 30th June. From 1st July full fees are payable but this covers you to the following year’s renewal.
You’ll be introduced to a coach or club member, and they’ll explain what session is planned for your group. Speak to any other runners too: We’re always happy to explain the subtleties of the session if you’re unsure. We all congregate just outside the ski centre at 6.30pm for announcements and race results, you’ll be introduced, and then we head off for a run or training session. We’re usually back between 7.30 and 8, although that very much depends on the session.
