If you wish to organise an athletics event under UKA rules, be it a track and field meeting, road race, cross-country event, hill race or highland games, you will require a licence. Power of 10 and Runbritain Rankings will only include performances from licensed events.
We are currently accepting applications for events planned during the Summer 2022 and Winter 2022/23 season. This covers all events taking place on or before 31st March 2023.
Licences will only be issued to organisations who are current members of scottishathletics. This includes affiliated athletics clubs, associate members and event organisation members. If you would like an event licence and are not currently a member, you can register as an event organisation member through the ‘Signup’ link at the top of this page before applying.
Please ensure that you also familiarise yourself with the the post-event returns process before applying, and ensure that you do not have any outstanding returns overdue.
If you are applying for a licence for a Road Race, please ensure your course measurement certificate is up to date before applying. Renewal instructions can be found on page 2 of your existing licence. An out of date or missing certificate could cause a delay in your licence being issued.
Should extenuating circumstances lead to the postponement or cancellation of your event, please let us know by e-mail to email@example.com. We will then be able to update your existing licence for the new date (if within the same season) or mark the event as cancelled.
