Tweed Striders Membership : Fitness, Fun and Friendship

The membership year runs from 1 February to 31 January as follows :

Tweed Striders Membership @ £20 pa (minimum age is 16 years)

Tweed Tri / Berwick Wheelers Associate Membership @ £15 pa (minimum age is 16 years);  Tweed Striders members can join Berwick Wheelers at a discounted rate of £12 (from £16) and Tweed Tri at £15 (from £24).

The club also accepts junior runners (minimum age is 12 years) but only at the Tuesday sessions and provided they run with a parent;  Junior Membership costs £15 pa.

If you require membership of England Athletics, you can add this on when you join Tweed Striders for an additional £13 pa (the current cost of England Athletics membership).

Trial Period

However, we appreciate that joining is a big commitment so we offer prospective members a trial period whereby you pay £1 per week for training for a few weeks.  Thereafter, assuming we are a “good fit”, we ask that you then join the club - it obviously works out much cheaper to take out membership than to pay £1 per week on an on-going basis.

Benefits of Membership ...

Our motto is Fitness, Fun and Friendship and we foster this ethos through a variety of social events.  In the spring and summer months we organise a monthly Breakfast Run.  This rotates round the Eastern Borders and North Northumberland and takes place, generally, on the first Sunday of the month (April to September) at a different venue each time;  it iis very much a social run followed, as it is, by coffee and bacon rolls at a local hostelry.  In addition every September we hold a Summer Social at which we award club trophies and prizes and enjoy each other's company over a buffet and a few drinks - this is definitely a family affair as members are encouraged to bring their partner and children.  Finally, in December we have a club Christmas meal-out.  Other ad hoc social events are also organised from time-to-time, for example after the cross-country season.  Members are also welcome to join RunDuns at their sessions – ask Caroline for details.

Over and above access to training and coach expertise, plus the opportunity to run with like-minded individuals, being a member of Tweed Striders entitles you to a 10% discount at the following stores : Run and Become (Edinburgh), Run4It (Edinburgh), StartFitness (Newcastle) and Go Outdoors (Berwick).  You will, however, need to produce your Tweed Striders membership card in store in order to obtain the discount.  

Members also receive a 10% discount and free standard delivery from SportsShoes.com, the online retail brand which focusses on three core aspects of fitness: run, gym and hike.  Members wishing to take advantage of this should contact Caroline for the code which is changed monthly.  The terms and conditions of the agreement with SportsShoes.com mean that the code is for the use of members only, so must not be shared with non-members, and it must not be posted online.  SportsShoes website can be found at https://www.sportsshoes.com/

Finally, members who belong to England Athletics can access benefits offered by England Athletics (see their website), as well as an online 10% discount from Run and Become; for the latter please register at http://www.runandbecome.com/SpecialPages/Club-Discounts
