Joining the Club

Thank you so much for you interest in joining Leigh-on-Sea Striders (LoSS).  We’d be delighted to have you in the club.

We have 3 types of membership for those aged 18 and over: 1st Claim, 2nd Claim and Social (no running).

On a case by case basis we do accept members aged 16-17. Please email if you would like to ask about this.

If you are over 18 and decide to join the club please read the UK Athletics & HCAF Senior Athletes Code of Conduct (you will need to agree to this via the England Athletics site when you join the club) and complete the online membership application form.

To be a member you are also required to be bound by the UK Athletics Anti-Doping Rules.

Once you have been accepted as a member and set up on England Athletics you will be sent a link to pay the membership fees and agree to the codes of conduct via their portal. Payment can be made by credit/debit card.

If you have any questions or would like to try out a training session before you join please email our membership secretary Alison Dunn at
