Course Measurement workshop


Can you ride a bicycle?

Is ‘Logic’ your best friend?

Does arithmetic come easy to you?


If so, then you can become a measurer of road race courses


Workshop overview:

Procam International believes that every runner deserves to run on an accurately measured course.  

The course measurement workshop is a hands-on experience for beginners to learn the art of course

measurement for distance running events. The course measurement workshop is organised by

Procam International supported by Karnataka Athletic Association and conducted in accordance with

mandatory IAAF-AIMS guidelines that are used in training international measurers. Over four days of

lectures and field instructions you will learn and practice the procedure to measure distances for

distance running courses as per IAAF-AIMS guidelines.


Workshop instructor:

  • Hugh Jones (Olympic course measurer) - Secretary of AIMS (Association of International Marathons) and an accredited road race course measurer. Hugh is one of the world’s leading IAAF course measurers. He has measured the course for London Olympic 2012, London Marathon since 2002 and, incurring our envy, rides in the front vehicle monitoring the race line. He has measured more than 300 courses over his career, averaging 15,720 miles, all on his trusty bike. Hugh is race director and course measurer for all 3 international running events which happen in India from past 15 years (Standard chartered Mumbai marathon, Airtel Delhi Half marathon & TCS world 10K, Bangalore). Hugh isn’t just a stickler for race accuracy however, he’s also a talented runner with some big wins under his belt. In 1982 he triumphed in the London Marathon and he also tasted victory in the Oslo and Stockholm Marathon.Hugh Jones was the First British winner of the London Marathon. His experience of running 80 international marathons led to the book, Marathons of the World, a must for all runners who love to travel.

Workshop Description:

  • All practical aspects of road course measurements

  • Principles guiding the measurement process

  • Setting up a calibration course; calibrating the bicycle

  • The theoretical running line and how to measure it in practice

  • Documentation of the course measurements for international certification.


Workshop benefits:

  • All attendees will receive a ‘certificate of participation’ on successful completion of the

    workshop. Workshop certification provides an opportunity to be able to take the next step

    towards official accreditation as a measurer. Candidates need to supply measurement reports

    of races that they measure for authentication. After several of these have been supplied and

    been found of a satisfactory standard you will be recognised as capable of performing as a

    course measurer (under the label of an international ‘C’ class measurer).


  • AFI would be informed of these measurers’ abilities and asked to encourage race organisers to

    get their courses measured by them. In doing so the ‘C’ measurers would quickly generate a

    portfolio of measurements (including at least one marathon) that can provide a basis for their

    upgrade to an international ‘B’ measurer.


  •  In this capacity they would be qualified to measure races on the international calendar (AIMS

    member races and IAAF ‘label’ races) and qualifying marathons for global international
