So you've read the website and you want to be part of this amazing club.  Well you will be very welcome.  Annual membership is £30 and includes a free club vest or t-shirt to wear when you compete in races. You will also qualify for a £2 discount from many of the races you enter and a range of discounts from England Athletics.
Come and join us at our Weds night training sessions and we'll convince you that you're making a great decision.

So how do I join?
1. Complete the two forms below and submit.
2. Pay your £30 membership fee (or £15 for 2nd claim members) to our account (York Postal Harriers, sort code 56-00-70, account number 38512955).  We don't have an option to pay through this website so please use your online banking facility if possible.  Our preference is to avoid taking cash but if this is your only option please let us know.
3. Once you've paid, our membership secretary will register you with England Athletics (EA).  You will then receive an EA number that you will need to obtain the £2 discount when entering races.
4. Please note that if you are already a registered member of another club you will need to complete a transfer form via the England Athletics website prior to joining ourselves.  EA apply a charge of £10 to do this.
5. Please also complete this form in relation to our safeguarding policy.  We keep a record of data such as emergency contact details should we need to use them during training sessions for example.
