In light of the fact we will have a very disjointed season, the BQA have decided to carry over all our 2020 memberships and affiliations through to the end of the 2021. Getting back to normal may take some time, but we do hope there will be some opportunity to race before the end of the season.
Membership is open now for 2020-2021 and is £20.00 per person. As a member you are entitled to discount at some BQA races (discretion of the race organizer). You will receive news updates via our monthly email-newsletter (subscribe to this on our website). You must be a member to race for the ‘GB TEAM’ at the World Championships or in a World Cup race, and also to qualify for all BQA prizes in the National Trophy Series. Your membership money goes towards various areas within the organization of our sport, one being our website, where we hope to keep you updated with the latest news! But our biggest annual outlay is insurance, which we use to cover the races on the British Quad Calendar. We also affiliate to the World Quadrathlon Association ‘WQF’ so our athletes can race at World Cup Races the World and European Championships. The future of British Quadrathlon is in our hands, please support the BQA and you will be helping to keep our small sport alive!
