Below you will find details of a course that UKA are putting on 29th February on the island with support from Manx Harriers. The details below will appear on IOM Athletics and MH websites.
Basically if road racing, cross country etc are to continue on island we need to have qualified officials, this course will help these individuals keen to start their journey to becoming a level two official. The morning of the course has a module which stands alone on risk assessment and health and safety in distance events - as such it would be good for fell running and race walking also.
We all realise the need to add to the numbers of our group of dedicated race officials in athletic endurance events.
