Why UKA Membership?

England Athletics logoWe encourage members to register with England Athletics too – especially if you wish to take part in races and running events!

England Athletics is part of UK Athletics (UKA), and registration is only available via affiliated running or athletics clubs. Registering is optional but it offers benefits:

  • Entry discounts (minimum £2) on UKA licenced road and multi-terrain events
  • Entry to events exclusively available to registered athletes – under UKA Rules for Competition some competitions, particularly track and field, are only open to registered athletes
  • ebulletins including key information on the sport and exclusive registered athlete offers.

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 registration fee for 2018/19 is £15.
