Organiser's Description

Triathlon Scotland Event Organiser's Training Course 2019

The organisation and delivery of triathlon events are the backbone of the sports success in the UK, and the quality of these events is vital to the continuing growth and development of our fast growing, dynamic and modern sport.

Triathlon Scotland delivers an Event Organiser's course, which aims to provide existing and new event organisers with the skills and the knowledge required to provide safe and memorable events for all participants.

The course is facilitated by Richard Pearson (experienced race organiser of Aberfeldy Triathlon, Ironman 70.3 Edinburgh, Glasgow 2018 Open Water Swimming and many more), with support from Triathlon Scotland staff. 

Each course will be made up of 10-16 delegates, allowing attendees to share their own experiences and learn from others, in a relaxed and informal environment.

Time: 9am-5pm each day

MODULE DETAILS (you will be pleased to know there is no test!)

Event Management Cycle: This module will enable participants to describe and apply all the stages of delivering an event, identifying what  constitutes as a safe and successful event.

Project Scoping: Delegates will develop an understanding of what is involved in project scoping and its benefits. The differences between stakeholders and partners will be understood and an outline scope will be developed and used for more detailed planning in later modules.

Building the Delivery Team: This will look at the roles and responsibilities of your event delivery team for both a small and large-scale event.

Engaging Stakeholders: Develop and identify the stakeholders and partners roles within your event. The role of sponsors and the development of sponsorship packages will also be covered with in this module.

Detailed Planning: Delivery of project plans, providing delegates support on appropriate risk analysis, and the creation of appropriate Emergency Action Plans.

Course Design: Will help apply the principles of good course design alongside understanding the changes that maybe required for youth, paratriathlon or  races of varying distances.

Financial Planning: This module will assist event organisers in developing an event financial plan. It will identify the variety of costs that maybe be incurred throughout the event cycle. Event entry fees will also be discussed during this session.

Marketing and Communications: The aim of this module is to highlight the importance of marketing an event. Identify marketing methods, the outcomes of effective marketing and understanding when additional marketing support is required.

Event Evaluation: Evaluation of an event is key to the continued success of an event. This module looks at identifying the successful and unsuccessful elements of an event and discusses how to analyse your feedback, and how to decide what action should be taken.
