Race Numbers

Members are reminded that it is against EA rules to give your race number to another runner without permission from the race organisers, and in the past they have actually banned offenders from racing. Imagine you are a 55 year old having just done a PB and in with a shout for a category victory, when you see that you have been beaten by a 28 year old who had acquired a race number from the 55 year old who originally registered, even worse when they are the opposite sex ! It causes delays in working out the result and is a nightmare for Race Organisers. So, if you find you cannot do a race you have already entered, please contact the organiser first and only transfer it to someone else with the organiser's agreement.
