Thank you for your interest in joining Orange Runners Club. To participate in the weekly (Wednesday and/or Sunday runs) you must be a paid member.
Orange Runners Club runs are electronically timed (except for the trail runs), using a state-of-the-art timing system. In order for your race times to be recorded you will need to purchase a timing chip ($15) which is attached to your ankle via a velcro strap. Your timing chip is your individual identifier. The timing chip is reusable and therefore is a “one off” purchase. If you lose your timing chip, you will be required to purchase a replacement timing chip.
When you become a member of Orange Runners Club you automatically become a member of Athletics NSW at the Community Membership level.
