On the importance of clubs to England Athletics, the organisation’s CEO, Chris Jones, says:

"As we approach another reaffiliation period, this is an ideal time to thank our network of clubs and member bodies for everything they do."

"Clubs, member bodies and the dedicated, passionate people who work within them are integral to us being able to provide opportunities for all to enjoy our wonderfully accessible and inclusive sport whatever the ambition, aspiration, ability, background, or age."

"We look forward to welcoming them on board for 2024/2025. This will be a special year for the organisation, with the Olympics and Paralympics shining a spotlight on our sport; our programme of outdoor events, including the return of the Manchester International; alongside our Hall of Fame event and Regional Volunteer Awards Programme, which honour those within our sport. At every step of the way, we will work alongside clubs and member bodies to ensure that we are developing our sport."
