England Athletics Affiliation 1st April 2017 – 31st March 2018
At the start of April 2016 new UKA Rules for Competition came into effect which includes important changes regarding compulsory athlete registration in competitions held under UKA Rules (these rules apply in competitions for the Under 13 Age Group and above).
It is therefore important that competing athletes ensure they are up to date with payment of their club memberships so that their England Athletics athlete registration fee can be paid.
Please be aware that road runners will still be able to compete unattached however, athletes who wish to represent their club (and claim the registered athlete discount on entry fees) in road running events, will need to be registered with England Athletics.
In addition it is one of the Poole Runners club championship rules that, any member not renewing membership by 1st April 2017 will not gain Poole Runners club championship points until the race after they have renewed.
