The runbritain Race Directors’ Club has been created to be a resource to help race organisers to deliver better events. After registering and logging in you can access:

  • Support and information such as the Race Directors’ handbook plus the fact sheets which support this
  • Licensing – Firstly, apply for a licence for your event. On successful application your event is automatically added to the event diary and the facility to open your race to online entry on the main site will become available.
  • You are also then entitled to access the runbritain Race Director Courses at accredited and intermediate level.

Race Director course

As a service to race organisers, runbritain has developed a Race Director course, covering the key areas of knowledge and expertise needed by race organisers. The course combines information given out through presentations along with group activities. Attendance is voluntary and not assessed. A certificate of attendance is issued to attendees along with the course material. The content includes:

  • Legal and administrative issues.
  • Venue and course design.
  • Briefing marshals and stewards.
  • Health and Safety - Event Risk Assessment.
  • Role of Local Authority and Highways.
  • Producing an event plan

Traffic Management Course

This LANTRA course is for all event organisers, event marshals and other interested technical officials both in the commercial and voluntary sectors, and particularly those involved in road races. This course will equip delegates with sufficient information and knowledge to safely direct traffic movements at events. The course will also enable delegates to correctly setup traffic layouts for road closures and enact the traffic controls. The course is delivered by Up To Speed Training.
