(1) A marshal MUST be allocated to each position indicated on the Police Notification
Form AND to each position advised in the Risk Assessment Document. Each marshal should
be issued with a fluorescent jacket and they should be advised it is their responsibility
only to indicate the route to be taken and not to direct traffic.
(2) Checkers are NOT marshals. Their job is solely to make a note of all the
riders passing their checking point to enable the event promoter to ensure that all
finishers have completed the whole course.

regulations are adhered to and breaches reported.

.number sequence of all finishers passing the finish point.

and local regulations are adhered to at the start of the event. The steward may also
act as a relief 'pusher-off’. The steward should be a responsible member of the
promoting club and should have the authority to disqualify riders in breach of regulations.
In the event of any dispute between a rider and the Starting Steward, the District
Committee recommends that the rider be allowed to start and then be given a time
for the event - SUBJECT TO INVESTIGATION. In these circumstances a written report
of the alleged breach of regulations must be forwarded to the District Secretary.

of them. These should be written down and included with a copy of the start sheet.

(1) The precise place where the official is expected to be
(2) The time at which they are expected to be in position
(3) What they are expected to do
(4) A prepared sheet for them to record any details, competitor numbers etc.
