Subject: RunBritain Online Entries & Road Show invitation


Dear race organiser,

UK Athletics and runbritain are delighted to inform and invite you to sign up for the cheapest online entry system in the market which is freely available to all road race organisers who take out a UKA Road Running or Multi-Terrain Race Licence.

The only costs are the non negotiable bank charges which represent approximately a 65p charge on the average entry fee of £15 meaning that as an organiser, you will keep £14.35 per entry fee using this average of £15.

This means substantially more money for you to spend on your event!

This is the latest in a number of initiatives which the road running arm of UK Athletics has launched in recent months.

These initiatives include the launch of a world class website which is the official website for road running within the UK, a Race Directors Portal which is full of crucial information for race organisers, a long awaited online licensing function which has modernised the licensing process and the virtual club which was created a means of attracting and engaging the large pool of unattached runners (currently outside the sport) and encouraging their participation in road running and ultimately steering them towards club membership. 

In order to demonstrate how to use this and the online licensing tools and to consult and get feedback from race organisers and county license officers from around the country, Pierce O’Callaghan the Business Manager of runbritain and John Temperton the manager of Athletics Services in UKA and a senior representative from England Athletics are inviting interested parties to a road show (from 6.30-8.30 approx) at the following three venues:

Leeds on Wednesday July 15 (North of England Offices, Dewsbury)
London on Thursday July 23 (London Marathon House)
Birmingham on Wednesday July 29 (UKA Head Office, Solihull)

Please register your interest in attending my e mailing

We look forward to seeing you there.
