We have successfully completed our first year as an England Athletics Club. The past year, we've operated a hybrid platform called "Run Together," allowing runners to join us for free.
After careful consideration and a comprehensive discussion during our Annual General Meeting held yesterday, the committee has decided now is the right time to transition to a members-only club. This change will take effect from April 1, 2024. The annual membership fee to run with Team Caterpillar will be £27.
We understand the significance of this shift from a running group to a running club, and we appreciate your support during this transition period. We we will continue to offer our Couch to 5K program for free and allow potential members to experience our club for a month before committing to full membership.
Membership comes at a cost of only £0.52 per week, providing you with access to all Team Caterpillar sessions. Even if you run with us just once a week, this represents excellent value for money. The funds generated from memberships will play a crucial role in strengthening the club, enabling us to deliver more sessions with qualified leaders and cover our operating costs.
We hope you understand the reasons behind this decision and appreciate your continued support as we strive to enhance the Team Caterpillar experience for all members.
Thank you for being part of our running community.
