Moel Tryfan has been brought forward to 7th March.
The date of the David Bell Memorial race has been changed to Sunday 15th March. All other details are as previously published.
If you’ve previously paid for membership by standing order PLEASE CANCEL IT if you’ve not already done so.
If your standing order is still in place the banking system will take the old subscription amount from your account come what may, and will then keep it until it sees fit to return it to you. The old FRA subscriptions account no longer exists and so the payment will definitely be returned to you, but perhaps not as quickly as you’d like.
For any issues or questions please contact the Treasurer (address as per Handbook).
Unfortunately the rules for the English Championships appear to have been misprinted in the handbook they should read:
Eligibility qualifications for the English Championships are as follows:
1. First claim member of an English club and registered with England Athletics. Unregistered athletes must be members of the FRA.
2. Member of a club outside England which is registered with the appropriate home country athletics federation but born in England or resident in England for a minimum of twelve months prior to the date of the first Championship race.
3. Unattached members of the FRA born in England or resident in England for a minimum of twelve months prior to the date of the first Championship race.
* Runners qualifying under 2. or 3. above must notify the FRA Statistician either in writing or by e-mail prior to the date of the first Championship race.
A note has been produced by the FRA following issues raised by Race Organisers earlier in 2014. The production of the note involved direct consultation with both the UKA and the insurers by FRA member Graham Wadsworth, who has a lifetime of experience working in the insurance industry but who is now a retired insurance broker. It is now on the Race Organiser page of the FRA website.
