Transferring Race Numbers and Runner's Eligibility
There may come a time when after entering a race, you find that you're no longer able to run... hopefully not through injury.
Many race organisers allow entries to be transferred to somebody else. There may be some conditions for this transfer - perhaps before a time limit, or a same sex transfer.
It's important that the formal transfer procedure is followed, which may vary from race to race. Please check with the organisers and ensure that the name is changed accordingly.
The Hampshire Road Race League rules state that the constituent races must allow same-sex transfers, but other transfers are up to the race organisers.
It is especially important that you follow the rules on transfers in league races, as the club as a whole can be punished for knowingly allowing a member to run under another runners number without officially transferring it.
The League is run under UK Athletics Rules and under normal road running rules. To be eligible to score for the team, the runner has to be a FIRST CLAIM runner of the MEMBER club and CANNOT BE SECOND CLAIM, even if their first claim club is not part of the league (unless their club is not affiliated to UK Athletics, then they would be eligible).
Runners transferring between clubs must go through the recognised transfer system and score only for their eligible official club at the time of the race.
Runners transferring clubs during the season will have their cumulative individual league score shown under their current club - i.e. individual points are transferred with them but team scores left as is.
