Important Reminder: Information for clubs about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

We would like to remind you of important information regarding Data Protection. A change in government legislation regarding data protection called The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be in place from 25th May 2018. Athletics and running clubs will have to ensure that they are compliant with the new Government regulations. Last November England Athletics produced guidance for affiliated clubs and associations to help with identifying the key areas that they should now be addressing as a result of the additional requirements arising from the upcoming introduction of GDPR.

Book now for our events specifically for the road running community

If you are involved in the club road running in any role - as a runner, club officer, coach, leader or any other position - we have a series of FREE events designed specifically for you. This is an opportunity for you to share your ideas with senior members of England Athletics staff and to find out about the new and existing initiatives available to support road running clubs.

At each of the sessions there will also be an interview and Q&A with an England Road Running International athlete or experienced coach about their experiences, training and club coaching environments.

England Athletics connecting with local clubs

One of the many benefits of affiliating as a club with England Athletics is the opportunity to receive support from a Club Support Manager.  Emma Davenport gives a brief overview of her role covering Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and West Yorkshire.
