Changing Athletic Club to Torbay Athletic Club
FORM > Change of First Claim Club Form – updated April 2016 <
Please email Emma Gilboy to join Torbay Athletic Club , Torbay Tri Club membership@torbayaac.co.uk

New rules for Cross Country and Track and Field events. You now must be a member of an athletic club and pay England Athletic £13 with your club membership. Unattached runners cannot enter.

If an athlete is already a first claim member of any affiliated athletics club and wants to change to Torbay Athletic Clubs, there are specific rules that have to be followed. These rules are all in the UKA Rule Book but have been simplified in to two documents (below) explaining the procedure that must be followed in all cases.

In such a case, the athlete must first resign, in writing, from the current first claim club.
