How to Join DPR

It’s great that you’d like to join us.  If you haven’t already tried us out please do so – you can join us on a Tuesday evening at 7.30pm to see if you would like to join- just fill out this brief form on the contact us page to let us know you’re coming.

Otherwise here’s the information about joining our club.

Membership Types

We have different types of membership depending on your circumstances.

  • Senior membership is for members who are over 18. 
  • Intermediate membership is for members aged 16 or 17 at the time of joining. 
  • Concessionary membership is for people out of work, retired or in full time education (please provide evidence).
  • The long-distance category is for people who have moved 10 miles or more from our Dulwich clubhouse and cannot attend club sessions but would like to represent DPR at races and attend social events.
  • Junior membership is for under 16s (‘Pre-juniors’ are aged under 6 but this category is only relevant to certain events)
  • Social Membership is for non-runners, friends and family who still want to be kept up to date with club news and attend social events.

DPR is affiliated to England Athletics (EA).  Your membership of DPR includes your individual membership of EA (£15.00 per year) and gives you a 10% discount in many running shops, and a small reduction in race entry fees. There is more detail of the benefits of joining on the England Athletics website.

When you join the club your first payment also includes a one off joining fee of £26.00 to cover the cost of a club vest or T-shirt. 

(Please note the junior membership fee does not include affiliation to EA or a club vest)
