When we founded our club in 2010 there had been too few opportunities to run marathons in the North East. Instead members had to travel huge distances and pay out ever increasing amounts, often with little in return, to complete 26.2 miles. Now we have to contend with paying out ever increasing amounts for events in our area. The NEMC intends to rectify this situation by promoting events nearer home via our affiliation to the Association of Running Clubs (ARC).
Our philosophy is to organise: " No frills, no fuss, low cost, scenic marathons for local runners in our local area."
To join us: Only £8 per year and members will receive £2 discount on the entry fees for each of our NEMC organised club events and reduced entry fees to many other running events. Pay by bank transfer to our account at Barclays: Sort code 20-58-17, Acc No. 93820262 (remember to give your name in the reference column when paying by this method) or email Melanie to pay by cheque and complete our form.
