Licences and Permits

Most athletic events taking place in Sussex now require permission to promote and applications for permission must be made to the delegated Permitting Authority prior to the event being held.

Safety, alongside the effective organisation of all competitions, is a pivotal part of UK Athletics mission. Licenses and Permits are designed to provide a guarantee of high standards in all events held under the UK Athletics name.

UK Athletics governs the Rules for Competition for the following disciplines:

  • Track and Field Competition
  • Road Running Competition
  • Cross Country Running
  • Fell and Hill Running
  • Race Walking
  • Trail Running
