Virtual announcer workshop

We have an exciting training opportunity to become an athletics announcer!

As we see the return of athletics and running competition in 2021, we have a 90-minute virtual announcer training workshop delivered by James Thie.

The virtual workshop aims to equip participants with the skills they need to support athletics events in an announcing or commentating role.

Ideal for individuals looking to support competitions hosted by clubs or area/league competition providers, the workshop is free of charge and suitable for anyone aged 16 and above.

The role of an announcer is to provide live running commentary alongside the events unfolding. The announcer provides additional information about the event, reminders about the schedule, inside knowledge about PBs/club/current coach/records, commentary for medal ceremonies.
