Road Race Licences - Update February 2011
The new site of Run Britain is the place to look when needing a Race Licence. UKA like to have the "Real Buzz" logo on all race material, entry forms and the like. Paper applications are now not accepted, races can only be registered online.Keith Binney is the local licence officer for all road and multi-terrain races in South Yorkshire and does all the checks of paperwork, course safety etc. Organisers MUST send a copy of the course with marshall points on and an entry form BEFORE entries open. This also applies if you are taking entries online. The UKA rules state that licences should be obtained 6 months before the race and organisers should observe this although smaller club only races may be allowed a shorter period. Once all is in order Keith will grant a licence. Organisers have to download their licence by e-mail and print it off. Keith will supply a race medical report form and a referee form on application.
Once the event is over the organiser goes back to his application and fills in a returns form and is told how much to pay to UKA which they send off to Birmingham with a copy of the returns form or payment can be made by card which is much easier. The medical and referee forms are then sent to Keith for him to put into the system and the paperwork is complete.
Any problems contact Keith.
