So you want to join? Let us help you
We love to welcome new members. So whether you want to get fit or fitter, try something different (a mud bath at Minnis Bay XC or throwing a javelin in Norman Park?) or if you just simply want a social, friendly run with supportive people, why not come and try Bromley Vets. There is no obligation to join our club at first. Come along and run with us for up to three occasions and then if you like what you see and wish to join, we'd be pleased to welcome you as a member.
