Event Licensing

Safety and good organisation in all competitions are a pivotal part of Welsh Athletics' mission. The Event Licensing scheme has been designed to provide a guarantee of high standards in all events held under the Welsh Athletics name.

Clubs and organisations wishing to become Competition Providers are required to apply for a special affiliation.

Insurance - Cross Country Licence - Track & Field Licence - Road Running Licence - Mountain - Trail

  • Upon receipt of the application, Welsh Athletics will send out a confirmation letter including a unique affiliation number.

    The affiliation number will need to be included in all correspondence with the Licence Officer. To organise an event, the affiliated Competition Providers are required to send the appropriate discipline-specific form, available below, directly to the Licence Officer, who will then issue a Welsh Athletics Licence featuring the event information and the affiliation number.
