Do I need to join the England Athletics (EA) registration scheme?
Kent AC has made this optional and it is left to the individual to decide if they wish to join. The reason for this is that many races do not require affiliation to England Athletics – usually the more low key and local races such as 10ks, cross country and parkruns. To compete at a higher level e.g. National championships, South of England championship races, London marathon then an England Athletics registration number may well be required. You should base your decision on your anticipated level of competition.

EA Registration Fees (Optional)
For 2018/2019 the cost is £15.00 per annum for Senior athletes.  This covers you for a period of one year from the 1st April to 31st March. This registration now ties in with the Kent AC subscription year which runs from April to March.

Once registered you will be issued an EA registration number which is used when entering races where an EA number is compulsory. You will be covered for insurance purposes for the duration of the race. You will also receive some discounts on clothing at the Sweatshop chain.

You can pay the extra £15.00 for EA registration either by PayPal, BACS or cheque when you join the club. Existing members can renew their registration by the same methods. Once the membership secretary receives notification of payment he will register the athlete online and send the necessary payment to England Athletics.

A note on subscription and EA payments
The club subscription year runs from 1st April each year to 31st March the following year.The EA registration year is identical.

If you join the club in the first nine months of the subscription  year (April – December) then you will be liable to pay again the following April (unless you have chosen Life membership). This rule also applies if you choose to register with EA.

If you join the club in the final three months of the year (January – March) you will not be liable to pay again on 1st April. The last three months are “free” and you could effectively get 15 months membership for the price of twelve. Again, an identical rule applies with EA registrations.

Consequently you may wish to time your application to join the club accordingly.”
