Road Running – Event Adjudicators needed in Suffolk

All England Athletics licenced road and multi-terrain races are visited by an Event Adjudicator to ensure compliance with licence standards and to give race organisers feedback on their event. The role is key to the delivery of high-quality events.

England Athletics are looking for people with previous experience of race organisation (Race Director or similar) to sign up as Event Adjudicators.

What does it entail, and what do you have to do?

  • You can still run in the races you adjudicate (most events will offer you a free place).
  • England Athletics will cover up to 100 miles in travel expenses.
  • You’ll contact the race organiser ahead of the race to introduce yourself and request copies of key documents such as the risk assessment.
  • On the day you’ll check any other paperwork and the remaining items on the EA checklist e.g., were marshals all wearing distinctive bibs (you can check most things by whilst running in the race).
  • After the race you complete a short report (mainly Yes/No questions) which takes about 15mins.
  • There’s no minimum number of events to do each year, and it’s entirely up to you which events you accept.

It is a great way to help the sport and to get involved without sacrificing any racing you might want to do as well. If you are not taking part in races, then it is a way to get involved in road and multi-terrain events.
