Existing Members - Membership renewal

Membership for 2024/2025

Please suspend your enthusiasm momentarily and read the following before you follow the link:  

The Harriers have moved to a fully online system to manage Memberships and receive payments.

If you are applying for yourself as an adult you will see the options to set up and complete all aspects of the Membership process.

If you are a parent / guardian and therefore applying for Membership on behalf of a young athlete (i.e. 16 or under), you will be asked to set up an account for yourself first, and then to set up the one for the athlete member. This is all prompted within the system.

You will also be reminded to then set up the monthly ddm relating to training at the Stadium. 

Please be patient – there are a number of steps to complete. You will need to set up the Go Cardless DDM even for the one off Annual Membership. 

Families with three or more joiners – the discount of £5 per person will be allocated when the third person applies.

Any queries please contact:

Life Members, Coaches please also email for information.
