Membership 2020/2021

Dear fellow Bitton Road Runners
We would like to update you about decisions made by the committee in regard to membership.
You may have received details from the EA about payment of the athlete registration fee- please see below for details.
BRR Membership 2020-2021
In light of the unusual circumstances we face owing to Coronavirus we have decided to defer payment of the Bitton Road Runners membership fee for one month to allow us to take stock and decide on the best way forward. We will email you all again towards the end of April. In the meantime your current membership continues to be valid.
Please note that the competition year ended on March 31st 2020.
Amendments -England Athletics - 2020-2021.
1. Timings: The deadline for Athlete Registrations for 2020-2021 will be extended from 30th June until 31st August 2020. We would hope that those clubs that expected and prepared to pay registration fees during April will continue to do so as planned but we also hope that this provides some clubs with flexibility to help manage cash flow and defer payments until activity commences.
2. Athlete fee reduction: The individual EA Athlete Registration fee will be fixed at £15 for 2020-2021 effective from 1 April 2020 instead of being set at £16 as previously communicated to all clubs.
3. Athlete Eligibility: In the event of a licensed competition taking place during the summer (prior to 31 August) all athletes who were registered during 2019/2020 will be eligible for competition up until 31st August. Competition checker facilities will be amended to reflect this decision. Any new athletes entering competition will need to be registered prior to the date of the event.
The following aspects of the 2020-2021 membership and affiliation process remain unchanged:
4. Payment Gateway: The club affiliation & athlete registration year will open as usual on 1 April. This allows clubs to operate as normal if they wish and ensures some income will be generated in Q1. The individual Club & Member Body Affiliation fee of £150 will remain and clubs are asked to pay by 30 April.
Further consultation with the sport will take place in the latter part of the summer months as we look ahead to setting the affiliation and athlete registration fees effective from 1 April 2021 onwards.
He hope you are all keeping well. Please keep running alone or with your housemate. Please check BRR Facebook and the website for updates and please, please vote for the Kevin Rose and Kath O Connell awards .
Stay Safe
