The cost for club membership for the full year or any part of it is £27. If you have volunteered at a Striders event between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019 then you are eligible for volunteer membership at the discounted rate of £17.
As a member of Striders you have the opportunity to take part in various Track and Field events throughout the year in conjunction with our sister club St Albans AC.
To take part in track and field competitions, you need to have current England Athletics membership with St Albans Striders.
