We’ve tried to be as flexible in membership options as we can whilst attempting to keep it as simple as possible. Just to clarify…
As a club member, a runner can only represent the club in an open race, if they are registered individually with England Athletics and have their unique reference number (URN). The discounted entry fee is then applied. By not subscribing to England Athletics entries to races must be as an unattached runner.
It is also worth noting that if you run about 6 open races a year then it is well worth joining EA as you are saving £2 to £3 for every race that you enter with an EA membership (HR club only races are free!). As our allocated London Marathon places are also based on our level of E.A. membership it is only fair that the draw is only open to E.A. members only.
If you do encounter difficulties with this process then please contact me. Although if these difficulties include ‘I don’t have any money in my bank account’ or ‘the battery is dead on my laptop’ I might not be able to assist you.
