Clean Athletics Education

UKA is 100% committed to Clean Athletics through:

  • Investment in personal athlete education

  • Comprehensive programmes of ‘no notice’ testing, in and out of competition

  • Full cooperation with both UK and International Anti-Doping Authorities

Through effective education and information programmes, UKA’s aim is:

  • To create a generation of athletes who have confidence in their ability to succeed in athletics without resorting to the misuse of prohibited substances or prohibited methods
  • To create a generation of support personnel who understand that the athletes they work with can achieve their goals without resorting to prohibited substances or prohibited methods, and who embrace their obligations within the Clean Athletics principles.
  • To create a generation of athletics supporters who are sensitive to issues of doping in sport in an effort to increase their receptivity to prevention messages so that they can play their part in fostering clean athletics.
