The European Athletics safety and quality standards for road races act as an assurance for roadrunners throughout Europe. They distinguish between races that respect the standards and those that have not sought certification or assessment. They form the foundation of Running for All, a strong recognizable brand for running activities throughout Europe.
Three levels of standards encompass all types and sizes of races.
1 Star – the race fulfills guaranteed minimum requirements of safety and security for athletes during a race with a small number of runners.
3 Star – the race guarantees a good level of safety and security, and offers runners a satisfactory level of quality of services for a race with a large number of runners.
5 Star – the race guarantees a comprehensive level of safety and security, and high quality services, for a race with significant numbers of runners.
To achieve 5 starts, races must fulfill a total of 54 categories that cover administration and finance, course, environmental and social responsibilities, measurement, medical, results, safety, services and timing.
As the first race in Norway BCM fulfill all the safety and quality standards and is awarded 5 stars.

Tuesday, January the 19th, we arranged our second grouptraining for Bergen City Marathon. This was also the first of three sessions at our 2XU running school. Despite the bad conditions with snowy pavement and 10 degrees below zero, there was nothing to complain about regarding the runners effort. About 170 people got training tips from former racewalker Trond Nymark and his coach from Olympiatoppen Roger Gjelsvik. The lecture was held at the fabulous Thon Hotel Bergen Airport. The evening ended with a fresh 10km running session, and both coaches and participants were very satisfaid after completing their run.
