Deeside Runners follows the Scottish Athletics policy for Equality:

We endorse the principle of sports equality and will strive to ensure that everyone who wishes to be involved in athletics (in all its disciplines and forms), whether as athletes, casual participants, club members, officials, volunteers, coaches, office-bearers in the club:

  • has a genuine and equal opportunity to participate to the full extent of their own ambitions and abilities, without regard to their age, sex, gender identity, disability, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, religion, race, socioeconomic status or sexual orientation; and
  • can be assured of an environment in which their rights, dignity and individual worth are respected, and in particular that they are able to enjoy their sport without the threat of intimidation, victimisation, harassment or abuse.

Risk assessment for club running events

It is easy to get lost out in the hills or woods, so when organising a club event the event organiser needs to carry out a risk assessment and make sure that it is followed by all participants.
Particular attention must be paid to night time events.
The attached risk assessment has been prepared based on actual events and is a practical application of lessons learned. Just download a copy and edit for your event.
