How to find your URN/EA number

We are often asked by members what their EA number is.

If you are not aware what URN/ EA number is at all then this is your unique reference that England Athletics assign to you when we register you with them.

This number is useful when you are enter races and want to get the discount offered to England Athletics members.  It's also used by us when we enter you into club races like the Gwent League and National Cross Country Championships.

All members have an EA number with the exception of those under 11.

To find your EA number, log into the website and look in your profile which is found by hovering over the welcome message in the top right hand corner of your screen (this is also where you log out). This is an opportunity to check that your details are all up-to-date.

Remember that every member of the club needs an account on our website so those of you with family accounts, you will need to log into each account separately to find each EA number.

Once you have your URN/ EA number you can check your details in the Athletes Portal.  If you haven't ever received a membership card from EA then you might want to check you details are correct on the portal.

 

 

Great Success at the South West Cross-Country Championsips

We had some great results in the South West Cross-Country Championships in Exeter on Sunday, including no fewer than three winners.  Dalis Jones won the under 13 girls race, leading her team to silver medals (Amelia Honor 9th, Molly Acton 34th, Ruby Saunders 36th, Abigail Woodworth 50th and Meghan Rose Porteus 59th).  Hannah Hobbs won the U17 women's race, with Rosie Allen in 10th place, and at the other end of the age range, evergreen Mike Mewse on the Masters 60 event.

In the U15 boys race, Abdi Hasan narrowly lost out to English Schools Champion Harris Mier, but as with Dalis and Hannah, his second place should stand him in a good place when it comes to selection for the South West London Mini-Marathon team in April.  Abdi was backed up by Fred Stewart in 28th, and Johan Hobbs in 35th.

Seamus Robinson, running a year young, also finished in 10th place, in the U13 boys race.  Other results: U15G Isobel Smart 34, U17M Aidan Noble 32, U20M Joe Connors 15, M50 Ken Ham 8th, M40 Rich Noble 25th.
