Definitions for the purpose of reporting:

  • Accident: An event that results in injury or ill health
  • Incident: an event not causing harm, but has the potential to cause injury or ill health
  • Fatality – An event that results in death

As part of UK Athletics’ ongoing commitment to provide a safe sport, anyone who has witnessed or been involved in either an accident or incident is asked to complete a short online report.

This is done using UKAs online reporting forms. The information that you provide will help to prevent future occurrences of similar incidents and also provide an overview of the type and frequency of accidents when they do occur.

Compiling our accident/incident information in this way is useful for many reasons and most significantly helps us to identify any specific issues or trends with regards to accidents or injuries.

To report an accident, incident or fatality complete and submit the form below.

Note: If an accident has resulted in serious injury, or a hazard is so serious that it could result in an accident in the immediate future, it is important that these facts are reported immediately to the relevant Facility Operator, Race Director or Local Authority Health & Safety Manager.
