How to join us

Hello and welcome to Stainland Lions… well almost!  No doubt you’re eager to join, so this is how to get started. If you have access to a printer, download, print and fully complete the Application form first of all (in BLOCK CAPITALS please) and hand it to a member of the club Committee, together with the following two forms of identification:

  • Confirmation of Name: Driving Licence containing a photo or a valid passport.

  • Confirmation of Address: Bank/credit card statement or recent utility bill

Please bring original documents as photocopies will not be accepted and don’t forget your money or a cheque made payable to ‘Stainland Lions Running Club’. 

If you don’t know what any of the committee members look like, just take a peek on the Committee Page, or ask someone at the club. 

We would prefer this exercise to be completed at one of our monthly meetings, which are held on the first Thursday of every month, after the run, in the Heath clubhouse. It’s much easier for these documents to be completed and checked indoors and naturally this is an ideal opportunity for you to meet some other club members and find out what’s going on.

If you can’t make the monthly meeting then please make every effort to help us with your application by completing the form and bringing all the correct documents at a suitable time, preferably not 5 minutes before a club run!

If you have any questions or concerns at all about the above process, please contact a Committee member as soon as possible. You’ll find links to our e-mail addresses on the Contacts Page – simple click on a picture and drop one of us a line.  

We are sure you’ll enjoy being a member of Stainland Lions and we wish you every success with your running and during your time with us, however long that may be.

Many thanks, 

The Committee, Stainland Lions Running Club


Here are memberships explained

Full membership. Provides first claim membership with our club, registered with England Athletics (EA) for Road, Fell, Trail & Cross Country races. Also gives 'attached' status when entering EA events which usually means a reduced race entry fee.  Other benefits of EA membership are third-party insurance when training with the club and entry into the club's annual draw for guaranteed London Marathon places.

Second Claim membership. For example, where a runner may be a first claim member of a fell running club and registered with the FRA, but wishes to join us for cross-country and the occasional road or trail race for which they also need to be EA registered.

Social membership. Typically a non-running partner who wishes to join in with our social life, but thinks running is mad!
