UKAthletics make important changes to the rules for competition from 1st April 2006. The present system of Technical Officials applying to track and field is extended to road, cross country and fell. However nobody seems to be complying with it in fact I doubt that 90% of clubs are even aware of it. Yet failure to comply with the rules mean that the event is not run in accordance with UKA Rules.
Insurers are not charities. As soon as they receive a major claim they search for reasons to decline it. It is my view that insurers would have grounds for declining practically every claim that could have been made on all road, cross country and fell races from the 1st April until now. These sloppy practices regarding insurance must cease or it is going to end in tears.
