new local courses have been announced as below from British Cycling
British Cycling is looking for volunteers to become Accredited Marshals at road cycling events.
Accredited Marshals are playing a huge role in securing the future of road racing in this country by making staging road races easier, more professional and, most importantly of all, safer for everyone involved.
Volunteering as an Accredited Marshal is a fantastic way to get involved with the sport of cycling and protect the future of road racing in this country. You’ll be playing an important role in ensuring we can provide our next generation of cycling talent with the opportunity to race safely and regularly on Britain’s roads. And by making sure that cycle racing on the roads is safer for riders and road users you’ll be helping to keep these great events happening in your local community too.
A thank you from British Cycling
As a thank you for your time, support and hard work we’ll be giving all Accredited Marshals who attend the training course a 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.
British Cycling will provide you with the FREE training you need to become an Accredited Marshal. You will be asked to complete an online learning module before attending a practical training session in your region that will last about four hours. Then you will be ready to start marshalling at races where you will be provided with an approved sign, high-vis jacket and log book to complete after each race as the final phase of your training. You will also be awarded a certificate and an Accredited Marshal, polo shirt for your first event with a waterproof jacket on completion of your first five races and submission of the logbook. Each marshal is expected to commit to a minimum of five races per year
