Safety in Road Running

As the overarching governing body for the sport, UK Athletics places a great importance on health and safety of all those involved in the sport of athletics (across all disciplines), and to demonstrate this commitment has established a new UK wide Safety Advisory Group (SAG).

The ambitions of the SAG are:

[1] Develop and implement a common safety framework covering all disciples of the sport.

[2] Ensure we provide our stakeholders with a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities in relation to safety and provide succinct, appropriate guidance to support them in delivering athletics events and activities.

[3] Develop clear channels of communication with key stakeholders that facilitates effective consultation, engagement and implementation.

[4] Aspire to continuous improvement and best practice in everything we do.

[5] Have external bodies recognise the sport's governing bodies as custodians of exemplar safety policy and delivery.
