Event organiser workshops

Following on from the 2024 event announcements, we are continuing in our prep for the year ahead. We are fully aware that event organisation can be challenging, and we are very grateful to those that have stepped forward to help build an exciting calendar of racing.

We have developed a series of workshops early in 2024 to help give organisers the tools to run events as efficiently as possible. These will be generic, rather than discipline specific, with opportunities to ask more detailed questions at the end of each session.

Whilst ideal for new organisers to get introduced to the processes involved, these are also an excellent opportunity for experienced event organisers to share best practice and gain some useful insights to how other successful events are run.

Please sign up in advance HERE, so that meeting invites can be sent out in due course.
