Athletics Northern Ireland - Course Measurer

In response to the ever increasing number of road races Athletics Northern Ireland wishes to extend its list of Certified Course Measurers.

Course Measurers work to ensure the accuracy of courses which are advertised as being a particular distance. Accurate measurements mean that Permitted Races can be accredited as being of the advertised distance and are accepted by Power of 10 and RunBritain for ranking purposes.

Basic requirements are:

  • A bicycle
  • A Jones Counter (this can be loaned from Athletics NI)
  • A means of transport to the course to be measured
  • A fair amount of free time

The first step in the process is to complete an on-line introductory test, followed by a practical under the guidance of a qualified measurer. Further information on what course measurement involves can be found HERE.

Anyone interested in becoming a Certified Course Measurer should contact the Athletics NI office to express their interest by email at info@athleticsni.org or calling 028 9060 2707. It should be noted that measurers only receive a modest sum plus travelling expenses, currently paid by Race Directors, for carrying out this task.
