Hi I've never joined a club because I run from work / home and find it hard to make evening meetings. But I do like to run the odd race as an unaffiliated runner. I saw there are new rules about all runners needing to be registered to run races under UKA rules. Will this impact me running in races like the great eastern half marathon? Thanks for your help 😀

It looks as though it's about making sure that club runners are centrally registered, but won't affect non-affiliated runners doing standard road races and not competing for a club.
mklr.org.uk and links therein.

In Scotland we pay directly to Scottish Athletics. According to article it affects only those in England.

Agree with Badger. Basically if you belong to a club, to represent that Club and count towards a team prize for example you much be registered as an individual. If you aren't a member of a club and enter as an unaffiliated athlete nothing changes.

Got something to say?
