Membership Benefits

All Serpentine members get the same benefits, whether you are a 100m sprinter, a casual runner or an Ironman triathlete. We think most of our benefits should be of interest to all our members.

For all members

  • Discounts on running shoes and clothes
    Club members get discounts, often around 10% (on production of their current membership card) at specialist running shops in London, including Run and Become, Runners Need and London City Runner, as well as physios, masseurs and even holidays and training venues.
  • Free use of the Seymour Leisure Centre
    Members can use the Seymour Centre at any time for changing and showers (not free use of other facilities such as the pool or gym). Just show your membership card to reception.
  • Access to the Serpentine email lists
    Subscribe to our mailing lists to find out about training, races, club social events and much more.
  • Advice from our coaches
    Improve your fitness and performance by getting help with your training from one of our qualified coaches.

And for new members

  • New members pay a joining fee and receive a voucher (valid for 6 months from date of issue), which can be exchanged for a club vest or running t-shirt. Your voucher will be sent with your membership card.

For everyone who runs

That's all of you, surely?

  • Discounts on races
    Serpentine is affiliated England Athletics for road running, track & field, cross country, trail and fell running. Competing members, who have paid the fee to register with England Athletics, therefore do not pay the "unattached" levy when entering races organised under UK Athletics rules.
  • Compete in club leagues
    Members can compete in races and leagues which are only open to club members such as the Southern Athletics League track & field, the Metropolitan League cross country or the Assembly League road races.

For triathletes

Of course you don't have to be a triathlete to take advantage of our swimming and cycling sessions.

  • Discounted British Triathlon subscription
    Serpentine is affiliated to British Triathlon, British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials. Club members enjoy a reduction in the British Triathlon individual membership (which is required to avoid paying for a day license) and can also race in cyclesport events. (Do remember that tri-suits are not legal in time trials, as you must have covered shoulders.)
  • Dedicated swimming classes
    Serpentine has its own swimming classes each week.
  • Spin classes and regular group cycle training
    Serpentine has regular group cycle rides and its own spin classes, just for club members.
