Long Membership Awards

We have many members who once they join up run with the club for many years. We recognise these individuals with long membership awards for 10, 20 and 30 years at our annual summer dinner with an engraved tankard (or other appropriate glass!).

In 2016 Stewart Flatt and Gordon Mitchell received 30 year long service awards and Andrea Lyons a 20 year award, photo below showing the proud recipients putting their engraved tankards and glasses to good use! 

Previous long service awards winners were:

Social Activities

We don’t just run together, we also get together for social events. There are two club dinners each year which are open to all runners and their partners; one during the summer where the club awards are presented and of course a Christmas do. We also arrange occasional club trips to various races.

Prospective members are invited to come and run with us on a 'try it and see basis' for a few weeks before making the decision to join as a member. If you decide Huddersfield Road Runners is for you, there is an annual membership fee of £40 payable in July. Find out more
