If you don’t fancy running, then why not volunteer?
We are looking to recruit course marshals for all five races, who can direct and encourage the runners along the course, or give out the water or medals. This year we are offering each volunteer a free race entry for a friend/family member.

For more information on how to take up this offer please email with the names of the volunteer and free race entrant and you’ll be provided with a discount code for your free entry
