Frequently asked questions
Is my club clothes included in the membership fees? No, but you can buy the club clothes at the Running Inn shop in the clubhouse between 17h00 and 19h00. The club outsources the clothing to the Running Inn and you would therefore have to pay them directly. They have card facilities.
Can I pay my membership fees in cash? The club only accepts electronic payments and cash that is directly paid into the club account. Please assist us in not handling any cash – it costs money and is VERY dangerous!
