Many of us as we progressed through the early stages of the programme and on to graduating have signed up for races. We have folk doing 5k, 10k, half and even full marathons. However, for many events it isn't possible to register your club as NHS C25k. It's OK for Parkrun and there is now quite a regular turn out of 20+ around the country - see parkrun.com/results/consoli... for last week's events. However many of the more official events such as the BUPA Great runs don't recognise it as a club. I think this is because it isn't affiliated to an official body, with subs and a level of insurance.
I did some quick digging on the internet and couldn't quite see a way round this. UK athletics seems to be more about track events and when you start looking at clubs it sends you to different organisations for England, Scotland, Wales and NI. I think we would need at the very least a UK club, even one open to the significant number of overseas members on this site.
What do people think? Is this worth trying to get the admins to look into? Or are people happy to move on to joining local clubs? Is the sports bureaucracy ready for a virtual club like us?
