Join our club

IRC will have to remit membership fees to both England Athletics and to ARC on 1st April 2020 in order to maintain the Clubs public liability insurance

The amount the club pays to these organisations is based on our membership.

The club is asking all members to either:

Pay the clubs subs due by 1st April

Or. Pay nothing now, but notify us that they wish to remain a member of IRC and agree that they will pay over the required subs once this current Covid situation is resolved.

IRC wants to support all club members through this very difficult time and would not want to cause any financial hardship to anyone.

The Club is happy to refund anyone who has already paid. Simply drop us a message or email include your Bank sort code and account number and we will sort it.

If you do not respond to this message you will be omitted from the EA and or the ARC list and will therefore cease to be a member on 31st March 2020.

Many Thanks


Ilkeston Running Club operates a two tier membership system

Type "A" membership £28 p.a.

Registers you with England Athletics as an athlete affiliated to our club.

Once registered you are able to enjoy a number of benefits:

Eligibility to enter area and national championship races.

Enables you to apply the "affiliated" rate for most open races , a discount of £2.

Discount on purchases at a number of sports outlets.

An entitlement to pre-order tickets for a variety of Athletic meets.

Provides you cover to race in events abroad.

The number of "A' type affiliated members directly influences the number of London Marathon places that the club can apply for annually.

Once you have been a member for one full year, providing you have met a number of other club requirements, you will be eligible to enter our club ballot for a London Marathon place.

Type "B" membership £13 p.a.

This allows you to participate in all club activities and events but without the above advantages of England Athletics affiliation.
