A UK Membership Scheme For Runners: Have Your Say

As part of the ongoing reorganization of running and athletics throughout the country, UK Athletics, the governing body of the sport, is looking at the practicalities of a membership scheme for all runners.

In order to make such a scheme attractive, UKA is aware that it would have to offer a package of benefits in return for any fee. Below is a list of potential benefits: which ones would be compelling reasons to join a running membership scheme? Please tick as many as you like.

Saving on race entry fees
Insurance (public liability and personal accident)
Participation in a bespoke loyalty scheme offering products or future entry discounts
Air miles or other existing loyalty scheme benefits
A 'license' to compete
Priority entry to oversubscribed races
Discounted sportswear
Discounted tickets to televised athletics events
Discounted health club membership
Other discounted products/services
Participation in a nationally administered running handicap scheme
A personal chip-timing device
