The BC Accredited Marshals are a vital component of road racing. With mandatory powers to stop traffic they ensure the safe progression of on-road cycle races - and the continuity of these events at a time when police authorities are imposing stricter than ever conditions on them. But the regional pool of AMs is relatively small and shared among all the race organisers and promoters - so there's always a need for more....
Our next South East Accredited Marshal Training course is on 6th April. The course is free and run between 9:00-13:00. Light refreshments provided.
An accredited marshal is a marshal who has been trained to use the 'Stop! Cycle Race' sign to legally stop and hold traffic to allow the safe passage of a cycle race on the open highway.
Overview of responsibilities
Accredited marshals are playing a huge role in securing the future of road racing in this country by making road races safer for everyone involved; riders, the race convoy and other road users. British Cycling will provide you with all the training you need to become an accredited marshal. Firstly, you will be asked to complete an online learning module before attending a practical training session local to you.
