Information for officials

Tri-Regional Officials Groups (TRGs) have been set up to take responsibility for the overall management of Senior Officials within England. As the name suggests, each of these covers three of the nine regions within England Athletics. The Tri-Regional Groups make recommendations to the UK Peer Group for International and National matches. Downloads of useful documents can be found on the right hand side of the page, and below.
