New dates for postponed races

As you most likely already know, due to the recent rubbish weather both Lytchett 10 and Bournemouth 10 were postponed. The new dates have been confirmed – Bournemouth 10 will be on Sunday 22nd March 2020 and Lytchett 10 will be on Sunday 23rd August 2020.


Save the date for the AGM 2020

The 2020 AGM will be held once again at Hurn Bridge Sports Club. The date will be Tuesday 23rd June. More details will follow but for now, please save the date as we would love to see as many members as possible there.


Membership fee renewals for 2020/21

It is almost that time when membership fees are due. This year, membership renewals from 1st April will be £36.00 for 1st claim members and £20.00 for 2nd claim and unaffiliated members.

Information about renewals and when they are due will be sent out via email to all members towards the end of March.

Also, this year all athlete registration packs from England Athletics will be sent electronically (so no membership card in the post anymore!) so it is vital that your email address is up to date on the system.
