MERCC will be applying very strict enforcement for marshalling to maintain 2 minute intervals between heats. If you do not turn up on time to take your marshal post, and have not nominated a suitable replacement to be in position, loss of your fastest qualifying time will be the punishment – no exceptions. We are expecting a large turnout and it is only fair to the Race Director, and the racers, to enforce this.
It has been suggested that the easiest way of organising this would be for marshals to take off their high vis vest and wave it over their head on completion of the race – until they are relieved from their post by the next marshal. That way we will all know exactly who is still waiting to be relieved from their post.
