How registration works
Becoming a Registered Athlete
As an athlete it is straight forward to become a registered athlete with England Athletics.
You must be a member of a club that is affiliated to England Athletics.
Your club is then responsible for registering you with England Athletics. For the affiliation year from 1 April 2016 – 31 March 2017 there is a £13 registration fee for each club member who is registered. The £13 charge is often paid by the club member alongside their club membership subscription and many clubs state this when publicising the membership fee.
Once England Athletics have received your details from your club, and payment for your registration, we will allocate you a Unique Registration Number (URN).
Membership Services submit details of registered athletes to our registration card printers every two weeks. Your England Athletics registration card should be received no later than three weeks from that submission. Athletes who have had a card and URN from previous years should retain that.
Your Registration number will be on the card that you are sent, it will also be available from the person at your club who keeps your details up to date on the secure club portal.
Once registered your URN stays the same from year-to-year. However, your club must have made an up-to-date payment on your registration for your registration to remain active. If payment is not received your registration will become inactive.
If you experience any problems in receiving your URN / Athletics Card, you should contact
Your Club Secretary or Membership Secretary
