The St Albans Striders membership year runs from April to March each year, concurrent with the England Athletics membership year.
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 2017 and 31 March 2018 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. If you don't have this, please complete the EA membership form on the Annual Membership page. As Striders are not licensed for track and field, you also need to be affiliated with St Albans AC. To do this you will need to complete the UKA other discipline form. Contact Mike Martin (Deputy Chair) for assistance with this.
