Following a meeting at UK Athletics it is now clarified that UK Athletics Insurance covers Affiliated Clubs and Organisations for public liability. Although there are specific definitions within the rule book regarding Technical Officials, the policy also covers unqualified people as long as they have been co-opted to help by the meeting organiser, given activities which are appropriate for their age and experience, and are merely carrying out instructions given to them by that person.


Clubs and organisers are expected to follow recognised good practice guidelines where appropriate, for example the safety requirements published by the Fell Runners Association for their races.


Because of the concern expressed over the Endurance Event Officials section in Appendix E of the current UK Athletics Rule Book this section will not now apply to Fell and Hill Running until it has been revised for the 2008 Rule Book.
