The figures for the past few years are:

With six weeks to go until the end of the year, you can help us to make this the best growth year ever! So far, this year, runners have saved a cumulative £151,553 on race entry charges using runbritain's online entry service, benefitting from entering their races at NO EXTRA COST.

To find your next race go to our calendar that lists all events that are covered by UKA's £50.0m insurance policy and keeps track of your performances through the runbritain handicap scoring system. (Additionally, all UK weekly parkruns are covered by this insurance and are included in the handicap scoring scheme). The calender has a filter so that you can quickly find races in your area and for the distance and terrain that you would like to run.

Those races that have registered to use the runbritain online entry service have an extra tab, on their page, that clicks through to the online entry page that allows you to register multiple runners, collects your details, allows you to register your expected finishing time and allows you to nominate a charity that you would like to run for. Alternatively, you can use a tab at the top of the Races page - ENTER EVENTS ONLINE NOW that will bring up all of those that have the online entry option.
