Marshals, Checkers, Observers, Clerks & Stewards

(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.

 

(3)       Observers are required in both Open and Club events to ensure that CTT regulations are adhered to and breaches reported.

 

(4)        A clerk should be appointed to assist the timekeeper by recording the .number sequence of all finishers passing the finish point.

 

(5)       A starting steward should be appointed to ensure that all CTT national 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.
