Dangerous Incident

 Notify the Referee or Race Director at Road Races who in turn will:

  1. Notify the facility where the incident occurred.
  2. Complete the UK Athletics Accident /Incident report form.


Notify the Referee or Race Director at Road Races who in turn will:

  • Notify the facility where the incident occurred
  • Record the following details;
    • Date and time of accident
    • Details of the injured person 
    • Name of event and promoter
    • Description of accident with diagrams and/or photographs if possible
    • Nature of injuries
    • Details of any first aid and names of first aiders
    • Names of any other persons present
    • Details of the reporting person.

In the case of a reportable accident ( ie an accident in which the injured party is likely to require medical treatment) the UK Athletics Accident / Incident Report form will need to be completed by the reporting person.

The reporting person, particularly at track and field or cross country events, is likely to be the referee or meeting manager, but can be any responsible person.  At Road and Multi-Terrain events all incidents and accidents must be reported to the Race Director.

All accidents and serious incidents must be reported to UK Athletics.
