  1. EA Fee - all active athletes have to pay a £16 registration fee in 2022 to England Athletics (EA) to compete. It is our responsibility to collect it for EA on your behalf together with your subs.

  2. Being a registered runner with EA gives you discount to certain races.

  3. The EA (and Best Athletics) year runs from 1st April to 31st March the following year.

  4. Best Athletics will pay the EA fee on the 1st of April 2022 and this will ensure runners are registered with EA until 31 March 2023.

  5. If you are a member of an existing running club in the UK and would like to be a 1st claim member of Best Athletics, then a transfer request needs to take place. You can either do this by contacting your current club, or Best Athletics can contact EA on your behalf.
