UKA races are licensed and accurately measured. The red tape talked about here is only what any race director worth his salt would do anyway. UKA races have to conform to standards set out in the RunBritain handbook and an adjudicator is appointed for each race to make sure that the race does so. A race licence for a club is currently £25, but a lot more for a charity.
If your club doesn't affiliate to UKA, then its members are ineligible for London Marathon club entries as well as other things mentioned.above. The individual affiliation fee is currently £10 and compares favourably with what other sports charged. ARC wants to take us back to the Stone Age.
