This course is designed to give you a completely rounded view of running racing events from a SUP perspective.


It considers the entire events lifecycle from conception and delivery to post-event publications.

What will be covered during the course?

During this two day course, you will learn and practise a wide range of skills, including:

The Race Director Role 
Event Planning 
Roles & Responsibilities

What experience do I need?

You don't need any experience to join this course as we will take you through everything you need to understand or coordinate when running your own events. 


Do I need to bring any equipment?

Yes, please bring a laptop, phone/tablet and pens & paper.

Is there any documentation we get on the course?

Upon completion of this course, you will receive our Race Directors Guide, Templates to run an event, and you will have completed a mock event plan for a club race at your own location.
