Club Tart - Someone who keeps changing their club.

How many clubs have you belonged to?

And what is your excuse for all the swapping?

I have never belonged to a club and have no desire to either... so... what does that make me...??

Club Monogamous...?  No that would suggest I stick to one club..... 

Club Celibate??

Club Frigid?

i used to sort of train with a club, i went occasionally just to train with other people rather than alone, but never really trained properly or joined in socially. i've just started running with a club and hopefully i'll 'participate' more as it seems a very friendly club.

Now there's a thought I won't forget in a hurry.

I'm not a member of any running/athletics club (keep getting asked to join  http://www.wakefield-harriers.co.uk/  though)

But, I have been a member of the same Cycling club  http://www.featherstoneroadclub.co.uk/  for approaching 20 years!

'Up to press', I have entered all of my running events (be they road, fell, or XC) in their name, & worn a Club jersey (or if warm a t-shirt with the Club name on the front & shoulders)

Another club virgin too here.

Maybe I've misinterpreted the OP, but I don't get the inference that once you've joined a club, you're tied to it for life.  Is there some sort of blood brother ritual when you join?  Surely you join a club for you, so if it doesn't suit, there is no problem with changing to one that does.

Can change running clubs so long as you've advised your club and they in turn advise england athletic. Tis true which you can check as i was club sec when a member of our club wanted to joion another and i had to deal with the paperwork.

I was a member of a club for a couple of years, but I didn't do anything much with them. They were way too fast for me, even the beginners I will give it another try now that I've been out and about more than I used to be.

In my own case, I have only belonged to the one AC.

I have seen a lot of Club Tarts passing through.

Folks who join us for the training, then move on to others for a better social sceen, or a change of style.

Some have joint membership, What does that make them?

I've always been very loyal to my clubs, only been a member of 4 different ones in over 50 years. I left my first, Mitcham AC, when I quit track for orienteering, joined Mole Valley and only left them when OH and I moved to Germany. Joined the local athletic club and stayed with them 16 years until work forced a move nearly 300km away. Current club is a triathlon one, absolutely wonderful people and a superb coach. Have no plans to ever leave.

I'll admit though, I have 'toyed with the idea' of applying for membership of the 'Bingley Harriers',as they run two of my favourite events;

http://www.bingleyharriers.co.uk/index.htm

The 'Harriers verses Cyclists' (rode it in 2007/2008, & run it in 2009), & the 'Bingley Show Trail-Race' (only 3 miles/450feet, but straight UP, & straight back down)

Upon e-mailing to enquire, they also tell me that being 'local' isn't a requirement, as it seems that they even have overseas members!!
