Officials and Race Organisers Conference 2017

The 2017 Welsh Athletics Officials and Race Organisers Conference will take place on Saturday 7thJanuary 2017 at the Park Inn Cardiff North Hotel (Llanederyn).

With something for everyone, the conference will begin with a range of education and training opportunities for both Track & Field and Endurance officials’ as well as the opportunity for some informal networking and learning opportunities throughout the course of the day.

The morning will begin with a Health and Safety course, vital for those who have completed a Level 1

Track and Field course but are yet to complete this element. There will also be a Level 1 Field Judge course and a Risk Awareness course, a requirement for all Endurance Officials.

Alongside the formal elements there will be a workshop running relating to Clerk of Course Duties as well as a Technical Manager Duties workshop which will provide an excellent opportunity to develop knowledge relating to those roles.

In the afternoon, the race organisers’ element of the conference will feature some helpful tips, ideas and practical information with regard to staging and hosting events delivered by Nigel Rowe, a leading Race Organiser himself and an influential member within runbritain. This is designed for both race organisers and key volunteers / officials within clubs.

For the Track & Field officials the afternoon will be an opportunity to provide some valuable updates as well as experience training workshops applicable to both Track officials and those who carry out filed officiating duties.
