By joining Vegan Runners UK, you will be able to buy the registered vegan runners’ kit. The basic cost of membership of £6 is similar to the price of a pint of over-priced craft beer but you can receive the love of a family, the support of a community and the power of plants. For runners/supporters/families living in the same household you can join at a discounted price of £9. There is also a concessionary rate for students and runners on a low income of £4.
Our membership year runs from 1st April to 31st March. If you join between January and March, your membership will be carried forward on 1 April to the following year i.e. you can receive up to 15 months membership depending on when you join. Anyone wishing to join in December will not be approved until early January so that you do not need to pay again in April.
The more active or competitive runner should consider registering with England Athletics via the club for an additional £15. By registering with England Athletics, your results will automatically be listed for the Vegan Runners team. Registering with England Athletics is open to vegan runners of all abilities and allows the runner to claim the entry discount of £2 or £3 by declaring their UKA / EA number. You can also create an account in Run Britain https://www.runbritain.com/ and link up with other vegan runners.
