Junior Membership

Haverhill Running Club Juniors is open to anyone aged 12 to 18. We are an inclusive club that welcomes anyone – from those who want to run to stay healthy, those who want to improve their fitness to help them perform better in another sport like football or hockey, to those who want to be fast and compete in races. Whatever reasons a young person has for joining our group, they are all acceptable.


Sil with Benji

The club was set up in May 2018 and is headed by Sil Clay, a level 3 coach in running and fitness and a long-time member of the adults section of the club. It was recognised by the committee that there was a need for a junior section and Sil took on the role to develop the junior section. The group’s training is all based on teaching good practices:

  • thorough warm-ups and cool-downs
  • regular agility and strength and conditioning training
  • the gradual and appropriate increase of workload, speed and distance
  • an efficient running technique.


Annual junior membership is £32. The fee includes £16 for England Athletics membership – for more details on the benefits of EA membership click here.

We wish to work with a relatively small group and have a maximum number of members. This means that if you find that running is not for you after all, or another sport takes up all your time, please let us know so that we can offer your place to someone else.
