Membership of the Trail Running Association provides many benefits, not least the fact that you will receive a regular newsletter providing you with information about events and the sport. You will also have an avenue to communicate with the Association's committee about the way the sport is developing.

Members are able to claim reduced entry fee to trail running events.  These events are easy to find in the Race Directory.  (For many events all you need to do is quote your TRA membership number.  For others, you may need to register for membership of England Athletics.  This is free to members through the Members' Area of this website.)

Members also benefit from the TRA's Personal Accident Insurance covering: 

  • Participating in athletics at any meeting organised by or recognised by UK Athletics Ltd anywhere in the world.
  • Any training organised by the Club and/or the Federation or other Association Body.
  • Travelling directly to and from the abovementioned meetings or training sessions

Most importantly you will help towards the growth of trail running in the UK.
