The Skegness Beach Race takes close to 100 people to run and coordinate which is a massive number of people to manage. An experienced team of track builders and engineers will be on site for the week leading up to the event, and after the event to dismantle everything. The team are on site for around 10days in total!
However, the beach race relies on the Skegness town supporters and locals to help marshal the event to ensure the event is ran safely for the riders. All marshals are fully brief on how to complete this role. Some sites on track are very important and special marshals are brought in to cover these prime sports. There are usally in the region of 50 marshals on the track, and another 30 assistants, plus other coordinators doing electronic timing, commentators, safety stewards, and more!
