The current rules regarding athlete registration have been in place since 1 April 2016; guidance regarding the rules is available for the following people:
While athlete registration has been a part of the rules of the sport for a number of years, it remains essential that athletes are registered and aware of their registration details.
While road runners will still be able to compete unattached, athletes who wish to represent their club (and claim the registered athlete discount on entry fees) in road running events, will need to be registered.
Checks on registration
Many events and competition providers carry out their own checks on registration. Some competitions may also have specific rules regarding registration, such as regarding second claim athletes, that you should also familiarise yourself with.For a number of years England Athletics has also worked with competition providers to carry out registration checks at point of entry and after events, this is something we will continue to do. The number of unregistered athletes remains low.To ensure that you or others are registered prior to competition an athlete’s registration status can be confirmed at www.englandathletics.org/licencechecks. Competition providers can also upload spreadsheets of entrant/ competitor details for automated checks
