New introductory workshops to help off-track clubs with event organisation

England Athletics are pleased to announce new introductory workshops to help off-track clubs with event organisation.

Aimed at new or existing event organisers looking at staging road or multi-terrain races, this introductory workshop aims to provide clubs with both inspiration and information around setting up a new event or revitalizing an existing one.  The workshop is free to attend.

The workshop aims to guide you through what makes for a successful event including:

  • the needs of the target audience
  • getting started
  • volunteers
  • officials
  • risk assessment and safety
  • guidance on where to go to for further information and support
     

Attendees at the ‘Gun to Tape’ workshop will also be able to explore local partnership ideas. 

The first workshop to be held will be on Wednesday 17th January 2018 from 6pm to 9pm at the Derby Holiday Inn Express, Pride Park, DE24 8HX

Please register your interest to attend at roadrunning@englandathletics.org leaving your name, email address, Club and role within the club.
