Club Affiliation

We invite all clubs within Yorkshire that are affiliated to England Athletics to also affiliate to YVAA. The fee for 2022 is £20. Affiliation entitles all club members who are also affiliated to England Athletics and aged 35+ to take part in all YVAA competitions, including our Grand Prix race series, our Championships, and any virtual events. See below for a list of affiliated clubs.

Please note that there are individual race entry fees in addition to the affiliation fee. These are typically £5 for Grand Prix races if entered online in advance, and the standard race entry fee for our Championship races, which are hosted by open events.

Individual Affiliation

Individuals who live within Yorkshire and are members of a club affiliated to England Athletics can also affiliate to YVAA on an individual basis, even if their club is not Yorkshire-based, provided they are individually affiliated to England Athletics. The individual affiliation fee for 2022 is £10. This gives the individual the same benefits as members of affiliated clubs enjoy, as described above.

Before affiliating as an individual, please check whether your club has already affiliated or is intending to!

Affiliate Now!

Eligibility for prizes begins at the time of affiliation; it does not apply retrospectively to events completed prior to affiliation. If you or your club affiliate part-way through a multi-event series, only your performances after affiliation will count towards the series. So affiliate early!

From 2022, we are moving the affiliation process online, including payment processing. Card payments are handled securely, off-site, by Stripe; we don’t see or store your card details.

Affiliation in-person at events will still be accepted this year. However, to keep queueing at events to a minimum we’re trying to minimise on-the-day admin. Online payments are therefore strongly preferred, and an admin fee may apply to in-person payments at races.

Affiliated Clubs 2022

Please note this list is updated manually as affiliations are processed, so your club won’t appear here instantly once you’ve submitted the form.
