Website issue - Registration/Signup - I’ve changed my details

 

If you have updated your email address, we can update your contact details in the system to ensure you keep receiving emails. Unfortunately once registered, we can’t change your login email (this is a restriction of Wix). If you need to change this, the best thing to do will be to re-register. Please contact us to have the old account deleted.

 

Website issue - Registration/Signup - I was previously registered on the old website and am having issues accessing the new site


The current website launched in 2018. This is a completely separate system, so if you had previously registered on the old site, you’ll need to register a new account on this website. If you have already registered on this website or are simply unsure, feel free to contact us for assistance.

Website issue - Are mobile devices supported?

 

Mobile devices are supported but the experience might not be the best. We’ve done our best to deliver a great experience on this website, but are limited by the tools available. Currently pages with tables are best viewed on desktop.

Club standards - Beechnut - Which races count?

To qualify for Beechnut, road races must have a recognised road licence and have a qualified distance. These will be UKA or ARC permitted road races.

 

Club standards - Motiv-8 - Which races count?

For Motiv-8, trail races can be used as long as the race distance is in the title.

For example, the Malborough Downs 20 came up short, but for motiv8 that would count. Gade Valley training runs don’t count.
