Membership to the Hungerford Hares
Due to the curent global pandemic England Athletics (EA) have extended the deadline for individuals to affiliate with them until the end of August 2020. Therefore the Hungerford Hares RC committee have decided we will defer collecting membership fees for 2020/21 until August and automatically extend everyone’s membership to the Hares until the end of August 2020.
This means no-one is expected to pay to continue membership with the Hares when we are not meeting for group activities during the lockdown.
For those people who are already affiliated with EA your affiliation will be extended automatically until the end of August 2020.
We (the committee) will review membership fees in light of the current situation nearer the time, and I will update you all when we have further information.
For now no action is required on your part.
Annual Membership is due on the 1st April each year. Current membership is £15 (Plus 90p Paypal Charge). Visitors, guests, and prospective new members are most welcome to run with us for a number of weeks before we expect them to join up formally. Although Hungerford Hares as a club is affiliated with England Athletics there are additional benefits to becoming registered as an individual with England Athletics. Full details are available on the England Athletics site and include:
- clubs and athletes that are affiliated or registered with England Athletics have rights with regards to support, services and resources. These benefits include insurance, club places at the London Marathon, specialist coaching visits to clubs and preferential entries to events.
- Individual registration entitles you to the £2 discount for race entries. England athletics are increasing their registration checks and race organisers will be asking for URN numbers if you have entered as an affiliated (registered) athelete.
