Developing Marathon Paddling Race Officials accreditation

Marathon Paddling Race Officials need to understand Marathon boat specifications; for example simple things from knowing that a 'tandem' boat has two paddlers in it to the difference between an ICF C2 and a Pro C2 and why this matters.  They need to know the Marathon safety policy and why it matters in long distance races.  Marathon Race Officials need to know the insurance policy in place and requirements of that policy.

The goal for 2019 is to begin development of a formal Marathon officials accreditation program.
