To be EA affiliated, do you have to be a member of a running club? I'm currently a member of a triathlon club and I'm not sure if we are EA affiliated, I will need to check, but we are England Tri affiliated, which I know is different.
Can individuals not associated with a running club become EA affiliated?
I believe that individuals must be member of an EA affiliated club; however, there are some online clubs which you can join so you can get affiliated,. e.g Fetch Everyone
Yes, you do have to be a member of an affiliated club in order to be a competing member (and get the race entry reduction).
Some online clubs are more expensive to join than 'real' clubs, so do check out local club fees too.
They won't mind if you pay your fees but don't turn up often (or at all).
Thanks Wilkie. I was wondering that, as the main reason of joining would be to become affiliated as I get my training from my Tri club. I'll check out my local clubs and find out how much their memberships are.
England Athletics set to backtrack on fees.
Well they aren't really, it's going up to £10 for all.
