Marsden Racers // Running and Cycling club in Huddersfield


From just £15 per year

Membership Overview

We have been going since 2014 and have grown gradually over the years. We have a great community group that wants to grow further and provide more in our local area.


As a result, we are now expanding our club and memberships will help us achieve some of the goals over the next few years! 

Try us Tuesdays

First Tuesday of Every Month

Try us Tuesdays will be the first Tuesday of every month and you are welcome to come to our session. 

In addition, feel free to contact the club before hand if you have any further questions or would like some advice before coming down.

If you are a member or a UKA Affiliated Running Club, you can try us free and then join as a  social member after. We have great links with Lindley RC, Meltham AC, Stadium Runners and Stainland Lions to name a few and we would be happy to accommodate other UKA Affiliated athletes to our training nights.

Not at all, however, when you come down, let yourself be known to one of our Run leaders so they can get to know you and make sure you are catered for.

Affiliated RUNNER (+£17)

As an England Athletics affiliated club we are able to offer athlete registration. This will entitle the member to all the benefits offered by England Athletics, including discounts to many events and runbritain rankings for officially licensed races. For more information see the England Athletics website.

Becoming an affiliated athlete requires a £17 registration fee in addition to the club membership fee.

England Athletics membership runs from April – March with no discounts for joining later in the year. As a result we do not recommend that new members affiliate if joining between January and March.

If you are already an affiliated member with another club, please join as a regular member and let us know that you want to join as second claim in the comment box when signing up.

Affiliated Cyclist

As an affiliated club we offer British Cycling affiliation on top of club membership. This will entitle the member to all the benefits offered by British Cycling, including discounts to races and personal liability insurance.

Please note that to become an affiliated cyclist an additional payment needs to be made direct to British Cycling with a variety of membership levels available. We can then add you to the club on the British Cycling portal using your BC membership number.
