            England Athletics Affiliation


Introduction

The club offers two levels of membership depending on whether or not you choose to affiliate with England Athletics (EA). EA is the governing body for athletics in England.

You can access the EA website at: http://www.englandathletics.org

 

What benefits do I receive if I affiliate with EA?

A wide range of benefits are available if you affiliate with EA, including:

  • Reduced entry fees for UKA licensed road and multi-terrain events (minimum £2 per event).
  • Discounted products at Sweatshop.
  • Personal profile page on Power of 10 (national results and rankings database). You can access the Power of 10 website at: http://www.thepowerof10.info/

For a comprehensive and up-to-date list of all benefits associated with EA affiliation, please see: http://www.englandathletics.org/england-athletics/more-information-for-athletes


Should I affiliate with EA?

Please note that for certain events which the club competes in throughout the year, you will need to be affiliated with EA to represent the club - including:

  • Surrey Cross Country Fixtures (League and County)
  • South of England Athletic Association (SEAA) Cross Country Relays
  • South of England Athletic Association (SEAA) London Cross Country Championships
  • South of England Athletic Association (SEAA) Main Cross Country Championships
  • English Cross Country Association (ECCA) National Championships
  • South of England Athletic Association (SEAA) 6 and 12 Stage Road Relays
  • South of England Athletic Association (SEAA) 4 and 6 Stage Road Relays

Even if you do not intend to compete in these events, we would recommend that you affiliate with EA if you intend to participate in at least 6 UKA licensed road and multi-terrain events during the year.

EA affiliation costs £14 per annum and with affiliation, you receive a minimum of a £2 discount on entry fees into each UKA licensed road and multi-terrain event. So if you enter at least 7 events during the year, your total saving (£14) will be equal to the cost of affiliation (£14).


Where can I find my EA number?

You will receive your EA number once your details have been registered with EA.

The process is as follows:

  1. You join the club as an EA affiliated member.
  2. The club will register you with EA by sending selected registration information to EA including your name, date of birth, address and contact details.
  3. EA will allocate you a Unique Registration Number (URN) – commonly referred to as your ‘EA number’.
  4. The club is able to access this number via the EA club portal and will update your profile on the club’s website with your EA number. The number will be found under the ‘Sports Details’ section of your profile.
  5. EA will contact you directly with details of how you can access your EA profile via the ‘myATHLETICS Portal’. You will also be able to access your EA number there.

Further details on this process can be found at: http://www.englandathletics.org/page.aspx?sitesectionid=725&sectionTitle=Registration

Please note that for administrative reasons, the club tends to submit details to EA in batches – typically once a month. There can therefore be a reasonable lag period between you affiliating with EA and receiving your EA number.

In the event that you require your EA number more urgently, please contact our Membership Secretary, Cathryn Lower.   


Who should I contact if I have further questions regarding EA affiliation?
