All athletes and athlete support personnel are bound by UKA/IAAF Anti Doping Rules (which can be found on the UKA website www.uka.org.uk).   In particular, athletes should ensure that they register any use of prescribed medication containing prohibited substances prior to any use or (in emergency cases) immediately after use.   For further information please contact the UKA Anti Doping Department on 0121 713 8400.

By entering you acknowledge that drug testing will be in operation for relevant races at this event.   If entering athletes (who are under the age of 18 on the day of event) in U20 or senior open categories, you will be required to submit individual parental consent in case they are selected for testing.  It is not normal practice to target U18s for testing, but if their performance merits it, it would not be fair to test some athletes and not others. Consent form is available for sending upon request from Athletics NI or to download CLICK HERE

By entering you confirm you have made guardians of any children/vulnerable adult athletes aware that photography/film footage containing their image may be used by ANI and partners.  Media queries/special arrangements & exemption requests to be sent to marketing@athleticsni.org.
