The club pays your registration fee to England Athletics. You should receive a competition licence card each year which will show your registration number. This will enable you to avoid the "unaffiliated" surcharge - usually £2 - that is added to the entry fee for most open races. Your registration pack will also include details of other offers and discounts. You can use the licence card to prove your membership in order to qualify for the discounts shown below.
