Volunteer Positions

Volunteer Position Descriptions

Course Marshal

Location: On Course

Course Marshals are assigned to designated areas along the run courses to help ensure that the course is safe for participants to compete on. The course is divided into sectors with each featuring a Sector Leader and Team Leaders to assist you. Sector Leaders will be issued a radio and will brief and deploy individual marshals to the course.

Drink Station Assistant

Location:On Course

Volunteers are deployed to drinks stations on the course and within the Recovery zone to ensure that runners are provided with drinks while participating in the event. Volunteers set up drink stations before the runners arrive by laying out cups and filling with water. They then provide drinks to runners, and remove empty/used cups.

Start Line / Finish Line Marshal

Location:Race Village

Volunteers help direct entrants to the correct marshaling zone areas at the Start line. Each zone is clearly indicated with feather flags & signs corresponding to coloured race numbers. When the runners cross the finish line they will be exhausted and excited. They will most likely want to stop, rest and chat. This can create a very congested finish area. It is your job to congratulate and thank them but to then kindly ask them to keep moving as they need to pass through the back-up timing system to ensure their time is captured.

Information Assistant

Location: Race Village

A specific Information Tent will be set up in the Village as a central point for general questions and enquires. Some volunteers are required to staff the tent, some will be positioned on stands to help direct people and others will wander through the Village and help answer people’s questions. Information assistants will also assist with distribution of Race Kits and finishers medals.

Baggage Services Assistant

Location: Race Village

A fenced baggage storage area will be set up in the village with entries at one end and exits at the other. Volunteers assist with managing the flow of participants through this area.

Workforce Assistant

Location : Race Village

Volunteers will be responsible for checking in all volunteers for the event and providing them with lunch packs and tshirts
