Case Study: Cardiff Half Marathon
The Cardiff Half Marathon now attracts a mass race field of over 27,500 registered runners alongside world-class athletes in a trio of fiercely contested men’s, women’s and wheelchair elite races.
Meticulous planning ensures that the event has adequate two way radio coverage for the route and event control. The course is followed with radio checks throughout.
It requires a two way radio system across the City of Cardiff, tailored to the organisers needs to deliver an instant and reliable system with health and safety being paramount.
A Motorola Digital Radio System in Capacity Plus mode ensures multiple channels with site wide coverage. A variety of handsets ensures all stewards can stay in constant communication with event control.
Onsite engineers give peace of mind throughout the event, and carry additional stock in case the quantity of radios or accessories were under estimated in the planning process.
