England Athletics Affiliation

Introduction
The club offers two levels of membership depending on whether or not you choose to affiliate with England Athletics (EA) who are the governing body for athletics in England.
You can access the EA website here

What benefits do I receive if I affiliate with EA?
The primary benefit is being able to represent your club at a wide range of events where we compete as a team, but there are also material benefits including:
⦁ Reduced entry fees for UKA licensed road and multi-terrain events (minimum £2 per event).
⦁ Discounted products at a range of companies
⦁ Personal profile page on Power of 10 (national results and rankings database). You can access the Power of 10 website here

What can’t I do if I chose not to affiliate with EA?
Below are the team events we compete in throughout the year.  If you’re not affiliated you can of course join in (and/or cheer) but your efforts won’t be counted towards the team which is always a terrible loss: 
⦁ Essex County Events
⦁ National XC
⦁ Southern Counties Events

If you’re new to EA affiliation, then we manage the registration process on your behalf which is as follows: 
⦁ You join the club as an EA affiliated member
⦁ The club will register you with EA by sending selected registration information to EA including your name, date of birth, address and contact details.
⦁ EA will allocate you a Unique Registration Number (URN) – commonly referred to as your ‘EA number’
⦁ EA will contact you directly with all your details
