Race Marker Responsibilities

Race Marking Guidelines

Race Marking Guidelines Poster

Some routes are marked, others not. A Race Marker is obviously only required if the race is publicised as a marked route.

The race route should be finalised well in advance of race-day and there should be no need for last-minute changes to the route or start / finish areas, baring unforeseen circumstances such as tree-felling.

Marking of the route should be completed well before the start of the race, so that there is time to update the Race Director on any issues encountered before the race starts. Typically it takes 4 times the winner's time to mark a route, though this estimate should be further confirmed when the route is recced. A circular route takes longer to mark than an out and back route, so in this case it is often better to have 2 markers who mark in different directions.

Normally, the Race Marker can run in the race if they wish.
