You do not need to be a member to run at SMC. You may just register, turn up and run and go home again if you like!
However SMC is a running club and we hope you want to be a part of it. In previous SMC seasons we have offered cheaper race prices for members. The SMC Committee decided that this was devaluing membership at SMC, people were becoming a member purely to get cheaper entry, not to be an active part of a long standing running club.
For this reason, and to simplify the entry process, we’ve made some changes. Members and none members will get the same pricing for all races. The benefits of being a member in 2016/2017 are:
25% discount on M7 marathon or M7 marathon relay (Estimated up to $25 value)
Half price SMC awards night dinner ticket (Estimated $25 value)
Eligible for end of season club awards
Perhaps the most important benefit is that you’ll become a member of a running club which has been established for over 30 years.
Please note that membership may only be purchased up until the 6th race in the season. Once the registrations shut for race 6, so will the option to become an SMC member. So don’t leave it too late!
