Marathon and Running Events Safety and Security Best Practices Guide

National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at the University of Southern Mississippi, 3rd Edition, 2017

The sport of running, including marathons, traditional distance races, and other non-traditional race events, attracts annual participation from millions of race runners across the U.S. These events draw even larger numbers of spectators, making safety and security a top priority for race organizers, public safety, and host communities. This guide is intended to assist event operators and their public safety partners in developing, implementing and improving their safety and security plans and procedures. The guide outlines key issues and implementation strategies for five topical areas, including: event/race day planning; emergency action planning; risk and threat assessment and mitigation planning; education, training, and awareness; and command, control, and communications.
