Thanks for dropping by!

Bude RATs (Run and Tri) is an amateur running club, based in the beautiful North Cornwall seaside town of Bude and has been in existence since 2008. We support runners at all levels to achieve their wishes and goals, whether to become healthier or fitter.

England Athletics

Bude RATs is affiliated with England Athletics and ARC (Association of Running Clubs). Bude RATs recommends you register, enabling the club to receive a club place in the London Marathon along with the personal benefits for you as a runner. We will provide England Athletics with your personal data which they will use to enable access to an online portal for you (called MyAthletics). England Athletics will contact you to invite you to sign into and update your MyAthletics portal (which, amongst other things, allows you to set and amend your privacy settings). If you have any questions about the continuing privacy of your personal data when it is shared with England Athletics, please contact

Please note that if you are already registered with England Athletics via another club as your First Claim club, for Bude RATs to become your First Claim club you must first resign from that club and complete the England Athletics transfer process.

The membership fee remains the same as last year - £12 for RATs membership; however England Athletics have increased their “registered athlete” (often known as affiliation) fee by £1 to £17.  The membership fee is therefore £12 without England Athletics registration or £29 with England Athletics registration.
