Event Technical Officials

Technical Officials are referees, providing valuable support at triathlon events. There are three current Technical Official qualifications in the UK: Local, Regional and National.  Technical Officials are supported by Motorcycle Officials who ride on the cycle course, looking out for drafting and dangerous riding.  Moto Officials also offer an element of first response safety cover, in the event of an accident.

Triathlon Scotland appoint Technical Officials and Moto Officials to Scottish races.  At present we do not have a bank of officials large enough to cover all of the events in Scotland, however we are growing each year and have an excellent development pathway.

Technical Official and Moto Official allocations are made at the beginning of each year.  Our priority is to allocate officials to qualifiers and National Championship events first, and then to a number of other events throughout the season.

Motorcycle Officials are also available to provide support at your event. Our priority is to allocate officials to qualifiers and National Championship events first, and then to a number of other events throughout the season.

Event Organisers should make themselves familiar with the rates for Motorcycle and Technical official expenses. Expenses are payable directly to your Motorcycle and Technical Officials for their services at your event.

Please contact us via events@triathlonscotland.org or 01786 466928 and we will put you in touch with Technical Officials and Motorcycle Officials in your area.

If you would like to join our Technical Official or Moto Official development pathway, please visit this page for Technical Officials, and this page for Moto Officials.
