England Athletics Affiliation: Mersey Tri Fact Sheet

Do I have to join England athletics?

  • No, its an optional extra

 What are the benefits?

  What does it cost?

  • £14. We pay England athletics £13 for each athlete we register. The remainder is to cover club affiliation & administration costs. This needs to be renewed each calendar year.

 Why is it offered through the club?

  • Mersey Tri normally leave it up to each individual to decide and manage their own affiliations e.g. Triathlon England, British Cycling etc.

  • England athletics require clubs to manage affiliations and there was desire from the membership for the opportunity so the club have affiliated to provide members with the option.

  • We can find your EA No. via the website.

  • Once you receive your card keep it safe, you will not receive a new card each year.

 I’m already affiliated to an athletics club. How does this affect me?

  • It depends on your situation & intentions

  • If you want to run for your existing running club

  • Do not select the optional extra England athletics membership option

  • It is fine to race triathlons or to just be a member of Mersey Tri & race for another running club.

  • There is the option to register as a second claim without payment. This should be discussed with our England athletics coordinator.

If you want to run for Mersey Tri:

You will need to select and pay for the additional membership option. You will need to complete a change of first claim club form and be de registered from your previous club. More information and the relevant forms can be found on the England athletics website.
