Membership FAQ

Q: I’ve just signed up to the TRA – what happens now and when can I log on to the membership page?

A: Once you’ve signed up you will receive an email confirming your TRA membership application and giving details of how to pay the membership fee (£10 individual or £15 joint). There is a link to download a standing order mandate which includes the TRA bank details. Once you have made your initial subscription payment this will be picked up by our Treasurer, linked up with your application and your membership status will be activated. You will then receive a TRA membership email with details of how to log in to the membership area and information on England Athletics registration.  (Note that, because the Association is reliant entirely on volunteers, it might take a week or two before your initial payment is picked up.)
