This year, we want to encourage members to sign up for UKA membership with England Athletics. As well as giving you race day insurance, UKA membership entitles you to lower entry prices on races throughout the year and other money saving discounts. You can claim £15 off one pair of running shoes every year and 10% off footwear and apparel throughout the year at Sweatshop, so it quickly pays for itself. Click here for full UKA benefits.
As a UKA member your race results are also recorded through the “Power of 10” service and your overall performance is ranked against every other registered runner in the country, including Mo Farah at number 1! The rankings for all registered Lymm Runners can be viewed at The Power of 10 website: enter Lymm Runners in the ‘Club’ box then click ‘Lookup’.
In addition to the discounts and rankings service, registering with England Athletics also gives Club Members a better chance of taking part in the London Marathon. All affiliated athletics clubs can apply to England Athletics for London Marathon places based on the number of members over 18 who are UKA registered. After the London Marathon ballot results are announced in October, any Lymm Runners who’ve been unsuccessful can enter our Club Ballot.
England Athletics UKA fees for 2016/17 is just £14.
Renewing is simple and this year you don’t even need to fill in a new application form unless you’ve moved, changed your phone number or email address, or got married and changed your surname. You can now pay directly into the Club bank account but please put your name as the REFERENCE, not Lymm Runners or we won’t have a clue who’s paid.
