Club membership offers many benefits – The main benefit of course is to run or improve your running with like minded people, and enjoy some social events with club members. Plus you can easily recoup your membership fee if you use some of the discounts available to club members.
England Athletics (EA) membership and benefits:
EA membership (which starts annually in April) entitles members to benefits. See the England Athletics website for more. The race and discounts alone can cover the club and EA fees. Here are some benefits, but check their website :
- 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.
