Race Director Responsibilities

The Committee will appoint one League Director for each league or championship. The League Director may also, if he wishes, take on the role of Race Director for some or all of the races in his league.

The primary function of the Race Director is to MANAGE. He should manage both the organisation and the safety of the race, avoiding becoming engrossed in any particular task such that other tasks are not executed correctly. The Race Director is ultimately responsible for ALL aspects of his race.

The tasks & responsibilities of the Race Director can be broken into 3 groups: in advance of race-day, on race-day and after race-day.

In advance of race-day

On race-day


On the day of the race, the Race Director must ensure that everything runs smoothly. Only in small races should he take on tasks such as manning the registration desk. In medium-sized or large races, he should oversee and manage rather than do. As a general rule, except for very small races, the Race Director should not run in the race.

After race-day
