- Rider record cards

- Master maps

- Rider maps


If you are the Traceur, you also need the following (which need to be reviewed by the TD prior to the event):

Depending on the level of competition you may also need to prepare: 

- Bearings and grid references sheets for riders

After completion of the event, riders appreciate being able to see the master maps, and the position of tickets and checkpoints (blown up if at all possible). 

PTV - what do you need?

As the Chef de Piste, you also need to have the following (which need to be reviewed by the TD prior to the event):

It's very useful to have a table ready with what judge will be placed at what obstacle, and it is recommended at three phase events this is also reviewed by the TD.


After completion of the event, riders may query scores and it is useful to have the TD/ assistant TD available to assist with these. At group events, riders may be able to read the score sheets themselves (but not at TREC Ireland events). 

MA - what do you need?
