WHAT YOU COULD BE DOING ON RACE DAY
Supporting fellow runners on the course is a role like no other, you will be ensuring all runners follow the race route, assisting them with any issues they may have during the race and also cheering them on every step of the way!
In this role, it is YOUR smiley face which can change a runner’s race from a good run to a great run and yes… you will of course get a tambourine to shake all morning!
FINISH LINE ASSISTANT
On race day, you may be lucky enough to be right in the middle of the finish line buzz!
As a finish line assistant you will have the job of giving all our amazing runners their one-of-a-kind event medals! You may also be in charge of handing out post race goodies including snacks, water and our famous flapjacks!
EVENT VILLAGE HOSTS
You could be an event village host at one of our events.
This means you could be the friendly face at the registration desk giving the runners their race numbers, organising and minding the baggage drop, or perhaps managing one of our many event stalls!
Event village hosts are also involved in setting up and packing down the event village, interacting with runners and spectators and social media managing.
WATER STOP SUPERVISOR
You could be placed in charge of a water station, meaning that you will ensure that runners passing by can quickly grab some water on their way! You will also be making sure that discarded bottles are cleared from the course and of course cheering the runners as the pass by!
Please submit your name and email address below if you would like to be part of the marshalling team!
