Road Race Organiser Training course

From Glyn of the Surrey League:

I have booked
Saturday March 29th to hold a Road Race Organiser Training course.

The course will be held at Lloyd Hall, Brickfield Road, Outwood, Surrey RH1 5PX starting at 10:00 and finishing at 16:00.

The course is aimed at both informing new race organisers with regard to running a road/circuit event and keeping existing race organisers up to date with current practice Road Race Organiser Training will be supported by qualified tutors, the Regional Road Race Organisers Handbook and a candidate pack.

The course is free to attend, but you will need to be a British Cycling member. Lunch tea/coffee will also be provided free of charge.

The course will be split in to five modules:

Child and Vulnerable Person Protection
The child protection training will cover good practice when dealing with young and vulnerable people with the added information on the responsibilities of the race organisers to protect the data that they have accrued.

The communication module will deal with using various methods of communication to their best effect. It will also deal with recruiting volunteers, gathering materials and resources necessary to put on a road race. Candidates will also develop a project timeline keeping track of who they will need to communicate with and when. Consideration will also be given to checks on materials use in races.

Administration will deal with budgets, licence checks, record keeping, and the various forms that are used by British Cycling to record events.

The technical module will look at conducting and interpreting a generic course risk assessment. Candidates will learn about the differences between generic and specific risks and how to deal with these. They will also try to develop a traffic plan concerning a specific real life road racing circuit to give an idea of the signage and marshalling necessary to run a road race.

The competition module will look at the more practical things that an organiser will be involved with when setting up the course. This will include the fitting of radios, placement of signage and equipping race marshals.

Please let me know if you are intending to attend as I will need to organise training material and lunch for you.

Please also pass this invitation on to anyone you know who is already a race organiser or is thinking of organising a race in the future.

Surrey/Sussex VTTA lunch

The lunch at Rowfant House Crawley ( Elezabethan style) kept up to its reputation foodwise as well.

The pictures from my camera demonstrates Phoenix successes last year. Sorry that did not get picture of Grant as well.
