Whether you are an interested runner, a retired athlete or an athlete in rehabilitation, course measuring is a skill in short supply in many areas at present.

The first thing that most runners consider is how long a race is. Then, most want to know if it is has been accurately measured so that they can evaluate their performance, especially if they hope to achieve a personal best.

All road races that advertise a set distance should be officially measured by an accredited UK course measurer. The Association of UK Course Measurers (AUKCM) accredits measurers in the UK and Measured courses are issued with a UKA Certificate of Course Accuracy by AUKCM.

Once a race has its measurement certificate it can use the “Certified Accurate" logo in its publicity material. This is instantly recognised by officials and most runners as a guarantee of measurement accuracy. The Power of 10 Rankings only recognises performances on courses licensed by UKA and which have a Certificate of Course Accuracy.

There are currently vacancies for course measurers in Somerset/N Devon, Gloucestershire/Hereford, Norfolk, Northants/Notts/Lincs,  North and West Wales and in Scotland, the Highlands, North of the Great Glen and the Western Isles.
