General Info



ARC have recently negotiated improved terms for the insurance of league races.

The improved terms apply to closed races where entry is confined to members of clubs affiliated to the league.

Races must comply with ARC minimum standards for road or cross country as applicable. The race promoter must perform a comprehensive risk assessment.

Leagues must affiliate to ARC as Associate Members. Affiliation fee 10. Complete the Associate Member affiliation form but pay just 10.

Leagues should apply to ARC online for a permit for each of their races. Initial fee 25 for each race. At the end of the season Leagues will make a return for all races insured providing numbers competing in each event.

Additional fees will be payable for races promoted by clubs not affiliated to ARC.

0-200 Runners                                    No additional fee

201 to 500 Runners                           20 additional fee (ie total fee 45)

501 to 1000 Runners                         65 additional fee (ie total fee 90)

This is a response from ARC to increasing pressure on league organisers from England Athletics to impose compulsory athlete registration.
