England Athletics (EA) Membership:
The club will subsidise England Athletics fees (£16 down to £10). Individual EA membership entitles members to certain benefits. See the EA website for more. The race and equipment discounts alone can cover the club and EA fees. Here are some benefits, but check their website as the offers and discounts change periodically:
- Entry to events exclusively available to registered athletes – under UKA Rules for Competition many competitions, particularly track and field, are only open to registered athletes.
- Entry discounts (minimum £2) on UKA licensed road and multi-terrain events.
EA membership also allows the club to get guaranteed London Marathon places which members can apply for if they fail the public ballot. See the Rule 8 in Rules and Constitution, under committee.
For those people who wish to take advantage of the England Athletics subsidy (the club pays £6 towards your membership), you must renew before 1st April.
Please renew as soon as possible as this helps the club understand its financial position and our ability to plan and invest in event, training etc.
Late renewal, after the end of May, incurs a late payment penalty and no application for the club place into next year’s London Marathon.
