Announcers and Road Race Organisers Courses -29/30 September 2012

27 Sep

There are still places available for the following courses:

Announcers course taking place at Cardiff International Sports Stadium on Saturday 29th September. The course will be led by Geoff Wightman (UKA, London Marathon, Eurosport and Sky TV commentator). The course is FREE.

The Road Race Oranisers course will take place on October 13th at the Angel Hotel in Cardiff. The course will precede the Lloyds TSB Cardiff ½ Marathon and will give the participants a chance to see good practice in place at a large event.

The course will run from 10am to 4pm, and we have enlisted established tutors Nigel Jones (Swansea City Council Events Manager and Race Organiser for the Swansea Bay 10km) and Andrew Taylor (Bath Half Marathon Race Director and Run Britain Member) to deliver the practicalities for races and the legal perspectives. Gavin Lightwood (Road race Coordinator for Run Britain) will update participants on event licensing and the move to online licensing from April 2013. The course will cost just £10.

More information on all courses can be found on the Welsh Athletics web-site.
