Paul WilmoreCommunications and Safety Manager
Paul understands the pressures of an event organiser, for 5 years he was the event director for the Capricorn Mountain Marathon, organising his first at just 18 years of age. Critical to any event is the clear flow of communication between event officials, particularly when covering such a large geographic area. Radio communication is the only effective and reliable communication medium, that can be utilised in a mission critical scenario. Indeed, the Capricorn was the very first Mountain Marathon event back in the early 1990s to utilise a commercial VHF radio system to provide safety communications
