Without Flag Marshals, we can’t go racing!
Marshals are an important part of any event. They assist in controlling the races and operate the flag points around the track. Admission is free and you get a trackside seat at the action.
So, if you are over 16 and interested in helping, please contact SAFMA (the SA Flag Marshals Association). They provide full training, all equipment, protective clothing and your lunch.
