Officials’ appointments for Northern Athletics championships are made by the Northern Tri-Regional Officials’ Group. They balance the need for a strong team of experienced officials at each event with the desire to provide opportunities for others to develop. Listed below are downloads for Endurance and Track & Field appointments. These files are regularly updated, so please check which version you have downloaded and what date it was updated/amended. 

If you withdraw from an appointment, please contact John Driscoll as soon as possible, so a reserve can be appointed.
