How to join

Wallsend Harriers welcomes young athletes from the age of 6 and there is no pressure to commit into a membership instantly when joining our club.

As of July 2022, our Junior Multi Event/365 groups and waiting list for children from 6 to 9 years old is at maximum capacity and we will not be accepting new applications until further notice.
We do have limited capacity for ages 10 and over in Multi Event.
Our running only group, for young athletes aged 11 and over also has some availability.

To be added to the waiting list, email with the subject ‘Junior waiting list’.

Once your child(ren) is at the top of the waiting list they will be asked to attend 2 or 3 sessions with us. This is to ensure that Wallsend Harriers is the right club for them and that we can provide the training and challenges that you seek.

They may then wish to join the club as a member – to do this you will need to email us ( to request, complete and return an application form.
At this stage no money will be taken off you but someone will contact you about this once your application has been processed.

The standard membership fee for Juniors is £25 per year.

If you were previously a member of another running club you must give the name of that club and the date of your resignation from that club. This is extremely important and enables us to register you with England Athletics without problems.
