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

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.
