You will recall at the AGM we confirmed that after a careful review of the administration involved with a club of 400+ members, we have decided to ease the workload for the club membership team and adopt an on line solution
From 2018 club members will be registering and renewing via a web based system administered by England Athletics, with 3 types of member arrangements to choose from:
- Club Members & EA £25 (EA membership fees increase by £1 to £15 for 2018)
- Club Members only £10 (fees remain unchanged)
- Over 70 Club Members & EA £15
Over 70 Club Members only no fee – Mary will continue with existing arrangements for this category only
You will pay your club subscription on line with a bank debit / credit card only (no Paypal option).Please note we will no longer be able to post out club newsletters from April 2018
New members can register online from 2 January 2018 and if they chose to affiliate to EA they will get the benefit until 31 March 2019, for the first year only (This not applicable for members who have held an EA number previously at any time)
Annual renewals are not available until 1 April 2018, further details will be available closer to these dates.
Runners wishing to register in 2017 can continue to do – full details are on the club web site. Please note club and EA subscriptions paid in 2017 expire 31 March 18
It is important that we maintain an accurate register of all members, with up to date names, addresses, contact numbers and email addresses. For those members already registered on EA you can update your details directly with EA. For non EA members please advise Mary Chantler of any changes as soon as possible, as we will require full records by March 2018.
We must reiterate that any club member who runs in an open race needs to subscribe to EA if they are representing Hastings Runners. Don’t forget this requirement for the Hastings Half Marathon our most popular event of the year
Do not hesitate to contact Mary Chantler, Steph Miller or Rob Thomas with any enquiries
