Joining Instructions

We welcome adult runners of all standards, and if you are already able to run 5 km in 45 minutes or less, then the best way to get started is to join one of our regular club runs which take place every Thursday, Saturday & Sunday morning from the King George Field in Boxted, or the Tuesday and Thursday Evening Sessions.

We welcome new runners to participate in club runs for up to 3 sessions to try us out before formally joining as a member.

For those of you that are new to running or not able to run 5 km yet, we recommend you start by taking one of our 12 week Beginners group courses, which will get you to 5km.

Alternatively, if you are between the two standards, Contact Us and one of our coaches will be in touch to see what assistance can be offered to help.

Club London Marathon Place

Every year, as an affiliated club, Boxted Runners receive a place in the London Marathon based on the number of EA Affiliated Members the club has.  A draw will be held every November for all eligible Boxted Runners who are also EA Affiliated Members who wish to run the event. The place cannot be transferred or sold and must be run by the winner of the draw. 

To be considered for the place you need to be a first claim member who paid their EA Membership by 30th April in the membership year.  You must have entered the London Marathon Ballot and have your rejection slip. You must also be registered as an EA Member.
