Does anyone else think there is a massive hike in BTF membership costs this year? I checked what I paid last year for my Coach Plus which gives me all the benefits for coaching as well as a race license. This year I see it's 83!!! Confused

I'm not sure what's happened at the coaching level, but the main athlete memberships have a range of new bands. I've had quite a few emails about them.

From what I could tell, the new expensive one really doesnt give you that much. Some extra injury protection (still pretty rubbish), a bigger discount on bike insurance (which I don't need) and a different gift.

Thanks reminded me to cancel my auto-renewal. Will probably only do 2 tris this year so not worth it for me.

It has gone up a fair bit depending on which option you go for, it seems the insurance is the main difference, although the top one does cover you for IM's abroad, although some holiday insurance does cover that anyway.

I've actually just renewed.

Coach plus I paid 74 last year a a club member so its gone up about a tenner for me. i havent checked the benefits though to see if there is any extra for that. to be fair its well worth it even at the increased price

Yep, I don't consider either BTF or my club membership fees remotely "expensive"

I only paid 50 for Coach Plus Club Member. Strange? I will pay but just wondered why the big price increase. I will call BTF sometime.
