Who needs Officials?

WE DO!! Just about anyone who is trying to run an athletics club or organise an athletics meeting, be it Track and Field, Cross Country or a Road Race, needs Officials. Most importantly, competing athletes need to relax, happy in the knowledge that the competition is being run under conditions fair to all.  Read more
