We have recently re-affiliated MTC to England Athletics for another season. Each individual MTC member who wishes to compete in running events is also required to pay a small affiliation fee of £5. Here’s a list of benefit to paying it:
- Avoid £2 un-attached levy at UKA affiliated races including Wilmslow Half Marathon, 4 Villages Half, Salford 10k, Alexandra Park 5k Series, to name just a few.
Help the club win team prizes at races such as the Stockport 10.
Compete for the club in the Manchester Cross Country league
Avoid missing out on important races as some event don’t allow runners who aren’t registered with an affiliated club to take part. This includes championship events such as the National Road Relays and National Cross Country Champs.
Give yourself the chance of securing a place in the London Marathon. Places are allocated to UKA clubs based on the number of registered members. The more people who register the more places we will be offered.
Get a reduced rate of entry to the Regional Athletics Centre at Sports City on production of your English Athletics and MTC membership card.
So if you plan to take part in some of the Manchester XC League races again this winter or run for the club at one of the Northern Road Relays then it’s important you sign up.
We will email out / add here details of how to do this in the next couple of days as we are going to use PayPal to keep things simple, fingers crossed.
However in the meantime could everyone who joined England Athletics last year please log on to their website using the username and password you were sent along with your card and cheque that your contact details are correct.
Why? This is really important to make things easier for whoever has to register club members as it is all done via an online database. If your details are already there and correct from last year then it is as simple as ticking a box, otherwise we need to type full contact details in.
To update your details log in via the link below:
Hopefully you noted down your username and password that they emailed last year. If not probably worth contacting Athletics Services: firstname.lastname@example.org
If people could try to do this before this in the next 7 days this would be a great help.
