Please ensure that you also familiarise yourself with the the post-event returns process before applying, and ensure that your organisation does 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 certificate. An out of date or missing certificate could cause a delay in your licence being issued.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 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.
