How to Join
Age: Membership is open to juniors aged 10 to 16 yrs. When a 16 year old junior reaches Year 12 at school they may begin running with the adult club. In some cases 16 year old juniors may be invited to run with the adult club when in Year 11
A Taster Evening: just turn up on a Tuesday evening at 6:25 at Honiton Community College, ( we meet in room 29 ) (term time only) wearing suitable running kit. Hi Viz for the winter evening please. If you enjoy the session and want to continue you can then join the club or be put on the waiting list. It would be a good idea to let Tony know that we can expect you - contact details below.

How much is membership?
We charge by the Half term as of 2018
Members pay a sub of £1.50 a week or £1.00 a week if parents belong to HRC as a paid up member. A full payment of all the weeks to the end of half term is required. In addition there is a £5 joining fee. Which goes towards the cost of England Athletics insurance.
What to Wear
Running is not an expensive sport. When a junior runner starts out they just need a t-shirt and shorts and a pair of trainers. In colder weather, an extra layer is necessary and perhaps a waterproof top. It's a good idea to take along a bottle of water or an energy drink, especially in hot weather.
If the junior is going to stay with the club and wants to begin to enter events then a good pair of running shoes is important. These shoes have better cushioning and offer greater support than ordinary trainers. Popular makes are: Nike, Saucony, Asics, Brooks, New Balance, Mizuno, Reebok and many others. They are available in specialist running shops and the better sports shops. It is good idea to go to a shop where the sales assistants know what they are talking about. Online prices for shoes for junior runners are in the £35 - £60 range, but it is worth paying a bit more from a shop to get the advice.
This website offers advice and has an interesting video of how a correct running shoe improves the runners gait. Shoeguide
The club has an official Honiton Running Club Vest which is worn in races. Members of running clubs that are affiliated to England Athletics pay reduced entry fees for EA events. For these events the club vest should be worn, although this rule is not enforced.
Tony is in charge of kit and usually takes it along to club nights.
Sizes 32 to 48
Price £15 but we have vests that the juniors can borrow when they represent the club
The Jackets were sponsored so that we could offer them at roughly half-price. We hope to raise more sponsorship to continue this arrangement. Sponsored prices are:
Price for jacket £10
