Coaches & Athlete Support Accreditation

Due to the safety and wellbeing measures in place we will be operating a modified accreditation process in order to ensure safe venue operation and people movement for all around the venue.

Accreditation for athletes at the Müller British Athletics Championships will be automatically produced in line with the events entry list or when your acceptance of the invitation to compete is received.

Accreditation for UKA licensed coaches with a valid DBS will be based on an event by event process application. Your coach must visit the link below and complete the registration of interest accreditation form. The system is live until midday on Wednesday 16th June 2021 after which point it will not be possible to apply for accreditation online. Only applications received prior to the deadline will be issued on the days of the Event.

Note that if the qualified athlete(s) withdraws prior to the competition, accreditation will not be granted.

N.B. You will only be contacted if your application needs further review or has been rejected in line with the current event policy, should you have any queries please email Yannick Phippen Accreditation@britishathletics.org.uk in the interim.

OTHER INFORMATION

Invitations to compete at the Müller British Athletics Championships are sent to senior and under 20 athletes only. In exceptional circumstance athletes from the Under 18 age group will also be accepted via agreement with their national event coach. Certain athletes will have qualified in two (or more) events and may only see their name listed in one. This is because we offer you what is assumed to be your preferred event but we are agreeable to switch you to another if you so wish. Hand timed performances in the 60m, 100m, 200m, and sprint hurdles THAT ALSO HAVE A LEGAL WIND SPEED will be accepted as qualifying performances – as will times in mixed races. We appreciate that many horizontal jumps competitions take place without wind gauges and as such will accept them as qualifiers – provided the athlete has reasonable back up marks.
