What do I get as a member?
As a member of FERC, you get cheaper race entries (typically £2 cheaper than the price charged to unaffiliated runners),
and the chance to win one of our London Marathon club places. We also hold a virtual club night every Tuesday evening around 8pm - a good place for advice and support to reach your goals - or just to talk about cake.
And as some of the money you pay goes to support the Fetcheveryone website, you'll also get a nice warm feeling inside. Thank you!
But wait... that's not all...
Get funded to earn your coaching qualifications!
We've been given a £500 grant from England Athletics, and we'll use it to help a couple of lucky FERC-ers get their CiRF and/or LiRF qualifications.
There's more information in Fetch's blog
on how to apply.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I join half way through the year?
Yes. Our club year runs from April 1st 2021 to March 31st 2022. If you're a new athlete (i.e. not previously a member of another club), you can sign up any time from January 1st 2021, and your payment will cover you until March 31st 2022. However, if you're
transferring in from another club, you're best to wait until the new club year, or you'll have to pay again when we reach April 1st.
When do you pick the winners of the London Marathon ballot places?
In normal times, this happens in December. With the 2021 race postponed until October, we are expecting an announcement
on place allocation soon.
I'm joining from another club. Is there anything I need to do?
Even if your membership with your previous club has long-since expired, EA will still have a record of your connection.
To transfer from your old club, you need to put in a 'transfer request', which sounds exciting, but isn't.
You can do this by going to your EA profile page and looking for the transfer link. This generates an email to your old club asking them to release you, and
when they do so, you'll get a confirmation, at which point you can apply to FERC.
What's our club kit?
We're completely happy for you to wear any Fetch kit when representing your club. Or a mankini.
Can I add FERC to my FE profile?
Yup. When you've signed up, click here
I want to read the FERC Constitution. Can I?
Yes of course - here's a link to it
