2023 Anti-Doping procedures

England Athletics has produced a video relating to UK Anti-Doping procedures to answer the frequently asked questions, including the reasons for the change and this can be found here:

In summary, the points that impact on competition providers and clubs are as follows:

  • The plan affects all licensed competitions held in the UK  (track & field, indoor, cross country, road, multi-terrain etc), but will exclude an in-house fun type of events
  • The England Athletics registration portal will be updated to reflect the UK Athletics Anti-Doping rules. Further details on what that will look like will be disseminated to clubs in due course. The Rules can be found here:
  • League events – as all athletes must be registered with England Athletics to compete, the previous point above means that no further action need to be taken for scoring athletes.  Any non-member guest or non-scoring competitors are required to agree to the statement.  On the day, the statement could be on the top of a competitor entry list and include a place for the athlete/parent/carer to sign.
  • All organisers of championship/open/school events must include a statement on entry forms so an athlete is aware that by entering a competition they are agreeing to the UK Athletics Anti-Doping policy and WADA codes – this can be done by tick box for online entries.  For on-the-day entries, this could again be at the top of an entry list and include a place for the athlete/parent/carer to sign.


The wording that all competing athletes must agree to is as follows:

All entrants shall be deemed to have made him/herself/themselves familiar with and agreed to be bound by the UKA Anti-Doping Rules and to submit to the authority of UK Anti-Doping in the application and enforcement of the Anti-Doping Rules.

The UKA Anti-Doping Rules apply to entrants participating in the sport of Athletics, for 12 months from the [date of entry], whether or not the entrant is a citizen of, or resident in, the UK.
