Accredited Marshall Courses

edited January 30 in General
As you probably know, most road races (such as our Primavera and our prospective Womens road race) on public roads now require BC Accredited Marshalls - or they cannot take place. There are some training courses coming up if you are interested in becoming a Marshall and helping support Road Racing in the UK. Detail from Ian Doe below, along with some words from BC about the scheme:

To increase the number of marshals and to help us all out, I will be running 3 courses in the near future, the places and dates for 2 have been confirmed, they are
16th March in Chelmsford https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/course/details/5030
27th April in Bury St Edmunds https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/course/details/5077
So if you know of anyone who wants to become an Accredited Marshal please direct them to these links.

Overview of responsibilities
Accredited marshals are playing a huge role in securing the future of road racing in this country by making road races safer for everyone involved; riders, the race convoy and other road users.
Accredited marshals are required to commit to marshalling a minimum of five races a year.
British Cycling will provide you with all the training you need to become an accredited marshal. Firstly, you will be asked to complete an online learning module before attending a practical training session local to you.

Benefits of being an accredited marshal
Free British Cycling Bronze membership which will give you exclusive benefits such as discounts at cycling stores, pre-sale and discounted tickets for major UK cycling events and a weekly newsletter with exclusive offers, news and top tips.
Upon successful completion of your first five races and the submission of your training logbook, you will have completed your training and will be awarded your certificate. You will also receive British Cycling accredited marshal clothing free of charge; this includes an accredited marshal polo shirt and a waterproof jacket.
