Dunoon Hill Runners has always aimed to be community focused, accessible and inclusive. Originally set up as an ‘interest ‘ group for those who enjoy running and other outdoor sporting activities, such was the overwhelming interest and participation, the group quickly established itself as a club.
Following what can only be described as an incredibly successful year, Dunoon Hill Runners will formally cement itself as a recognised hill running club in Scotland. Whilst it will remain flexible and accessible to the community, to continue the development of the club and runners, we will be commencing a yearly membership scheme. This will provide benefits such as affiliation to the club, insurance cover, discounted training and club race fees, membership, technical t-shirt etc.
The club will initially have two schemes, ie individual and household. A junior scheme will be proposed later on in the year. Membership will be a calendar year starting from the last day of February, however, runners can join at any time of the year (more details will be given on request). Non members can still take part in training sessions yet we would encourage all who have been involved to join as it will help support the growth of a club which in its first year has expanded beyond the founder’s expectation.
The success of the club will also provide wider benefits for the whole of the community and this has been realised already from mentions in national press and media, as well as attracting companies to host races and for sponsorship.
An individual membership is £20 per calendar year and a household membership costs £35.
The membership application form can be found below, and includes details on submission and payment.
