Please find below details for accreditation applications for the three UKA Major Events during the 2010 outdoor season.

Please note that the new IAAF Diamond League requires a central accreditation process to be completed for any of the 14 international events through the Diamond League website www.diamondleague.com whilst all other UKA Major Events, including the Aviva European Trials and UK Championships, will continue to require an application for accreditation to be made at www.ukaeventcredentials.com.
