UKA Affiliation 2019/20
Things have been clarified by Dave regarding this year’s UK athletics affiliation, which has changed. This is because fees have increased and our club has grown in size.
For the 2019/20 season, only Village Hotel Leisure Club members who have regularly run with the club during the last twelve months will receive free affiliation kindly funded by the hotel.
Due to increased membership anyone else who wishes to be affiliated will be asked to pay £15 by the last day of May. This is for one year’s fees and has several benefits. For race entries this will normally give you a £2 discount per race. This is because your UK affiliation includes insurance, so the race insurance supplement is not necessary. Secondly, it gives you a chance to gain our one club place in the London marathon. Our club runners without UKA affiliation will not be entered in the annual draw for London places. Other requirements for entry to gain a place in the draw for a club allocation will be detailed nearer the time.
It’s entirely your choice whether you wish to become a UK Athletics runner and pay your £15, and if you decide it’s not for you then of course we still hope to see you at our Tuesday and Thursday runs. Only you can decide whether affiliation is something you would like. UK athletics numbers will be given out in June.
