Joining Trawden Athletic Club

Join Trawden AC and you'll be part of more than just a fantastic team, you'll become a well-supported and valued member of the Team TAC family!

Our strong team spirit, friendliness and all-inclusive ethos are legendary! So if you sign up you'll immediately benefit from a wealth of knowledge, advice, experience and support from our wide range of members. Whether you would like to build your fitness and get motivated by running with others, or really push on through a programme of intensive training, you can be certain Trawden AC will provide exactly what you need.

Our members range from people new to running perhaps looking to complete their first race, to highly experienced ultra-marathoners; athletes who regularly feature at the top end of 10Ks, to those happy to just enjoy the experience of running or competing. There are bound to be people in the club who are similar to you and could make ideal running partners. In any case, everyone in Team TAC whatever their ability is happy to help and go that extra mile to make you feel welcome.

NOTE: There is a grace period for those joining between 1st January and 1st April. In this case your membership would not need renewing until April the following year. Therefore in real terms your initial period of membership could be as little as just over three months (joining in December) or almost 15 months (joining in early January).
