What to expect
We’re a friendly bunch, but we know it’s always a bit daunting coming along to something for the first time. Aim to get to Nethercraigs for about 6.20pm and be ready to run for 6.25pm. The staff at the front desk will direct you to where we meet, usually just behind the counter. Find the trustees taking fees (you can now see their names on the front page training schedule): but speak to anybody who looks like a runner, and they’ll point you in the right direction! Don’t forget a £1 coin to use one of the lockers.
Somebody will explain the setup to you (or have a read of our welcome letter). Your first night is free, after that it’s £1 per night. You’re encouraged to become a member after a few weeks.
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 in the meeting room 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.
