Fed up with England Athletics (UKA or whatever they want to call themselves these days)? Does your club organise road races? Have a look at ARC (Association of Running Clubs) as a viable alternative - they issue race permits, event insurance etc. and you get to keep a proportion of the unattached levy to plough back into your club and/or event!
