Accredited Marshals Wanted Urgently

The first regional Road Race in County Durham for 20 years takes place on Saturday 4th August near Barnard Castle.

This will also be the first event in the North East to use Accredited Marshals to control traffic.

We urgently need to train 10 Accredited Marshals for this first event.

The North East AMS course is on Monday 16th July at 6:00pm.

Chester-le-Street, Riverside Leisure Complex, DH3 3SJ

Enrolment is via the British Cycling website:


The course is free, and is a combination of online learning and one evening of practical training.

(Enrolment closes Thurday 12th July.)

Free British Cycling Bronze membership is available to non-BC members.

60% of road races across England now use Accredited Marshals who have been trained to use the "Stop! Cycle Race" sign, to legally stop and hold traffic, making road races safer for everyone involved; riders, the race convoy and other road users.

Come and be part of the team securing the future of Road Racing in the North East.
