Volunteer For Us

Volunteers, we need your help!

Any community event like us cannot happen without the help of volunteers. Volunteer posts vary in time so even if you have a couple of hours to offer we would love to have you!

Roles vary from welcome marshals, course marshals, baggage, waterstation and finish line volunteers.

Please click on the icon below and complete the registration form for this year (15th and 16th September). Once completed you will automatically be added to our volunteer list and our external volunteer coordinator will be in touch to provide you with all the info you need. We will allocate you the day and time of your choice.

Event Crew FAQ’s

What happens after I sign up?

Once you have signed up, our volunteer coordinator will be in touch via email to confirm that they have received your application. 

Can I bring a friend?

Of course you can, the more the merrier! However, please encourage them to sign up as well. 

What if I cannot attend?

If you are sadly no longer able to attend, please contact our volunteer coordinator via email as soon as possible so that other arrangements can be made. 

Is food provided?

All event crew will be given snacks at their post and a drink. The event crew/ volunteer tent at the finish festival in Old Deer Park is an opportunity to be rewarded for your kindness, socialist with other volunteers and an all-day BBQ with unlimited snacks and beverages (hot and cold) plus a free pint courtesey of Fuller's. This is your VIP area so help yourself! 

How should I dress?

You will be given a race crew t-shirt to wear. We usually have great weather for our event, however please come prepared for rain just in case and you may want to wear a jumper under your t-shirt as the morning can get a bit nippy!
