Endurance Forum - May 2012

Endurance Forum - May 2012

Forum 5 group shot of officialsThe first Officials' Forum especially aimed towards Endurance officials was held at the new England Athletics / UKA offices at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham, chaired by Graham Jessop.

This meeting had been initiated on the recommendation of group members who attended the October 2011 meeting of the existing England Officials Forum.  it was felt that a specific grouping should be convened to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing officials working within the specific field of endurance. 

England Athletics hope attendees will be able to shape the future role of the Endurance forum and general support to endurance officials in England.
