Firstly a big thank you to everyone who had already renewed thier membership, but for those who have yet to do so please remember that if you have not done so so by tomorrow evening your website credentials will be disabled until your membership is renewed.
In addition to this for those who have renewed or just joined by have chosen to not take the EA affiliation it is worth pointing out that in a recent committee meeting it was unanimously agreed that the club marathon ballot rules should be amended so that only members holding EA affiliation would be eligible for the ballot. It was felt that due to the fact that the number of places we recieve is directly related to the number of EA members we have on the books that it is only fair that those entering should hold EA affiliation, especially with the number of guaranteed entries we have been recieving dropping over recent years.
If you have recently joined or just renewed and would still like to take up EA affiliation please speak to a member of the committee and we’ll get it sorted for you. EA affiliation is only an additional £10 per year and by doing so you will be eligible for a £2 discount on any race that has been registered with UK Athletics on the Run Britain website and holds a UKA Race License. If you like many of us enter lots of races throughout the year it soon pays for itself anyway so it’s definitely worth having.
