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.
