Membership Details

Application for Membership

Membership forms are available in the Clubhouse and from the link in the above website menu (next to membership) please complete these and send them to the email address below. Please note that application requires your acceptance of the Club’s Privacy Notice. On initial payment (cheques made payable to “Coventry Godiva Harriers”) a passport size photo is also required, to form part of the University-supplied pass.

You may offer your support to the club by becoming an Associate Member for a payment of £10. Parents are also encouraged to become involved – there is always a need for people to qualify as coaches and/or as officials to help at the various fixtures.

The track is close to a number of country footpaths and Warwick University playing fields for off road training.

Note – athletes may only compete for the club if they are registered members. It is possible to “pay at the desk” to use the track, but for anyone wishing to use the facilities regularly (and benefiting from the coaches, who give their time for free) a club membership is the most economic option.
