Do you enjoy the atmosphere and excitement of Race Day, but don't actually want to run yourself (or maybe you are not able to at the moment)? Would you enjoy helping out and getting involved? We always need people to be part of our fantastic trusted band of volunteers. Duties can be anything from marshalling, manning the finish funnel, water stations or tea/coffee stand, or even setting up the course - different duties but all vitally important in order to have a safe and successful race.
Or perhaps you know of someone else who enjoys watching you running, who may not mind lending a hand - it's very satisfying and fantastic fun!
Please contact us if you can help out - we will be extremely pleased to hear from you!
