JOIN THE TEAM OF ENTHUSIASTIC VOLUNTEERS
IN ORDER FOR THE Trail Running Series presented by The North Face TO RUN SMOOTHLY, WE NEED THE SUPPORT OF ENTHUSIASTIC VOLUNTEERS.
We are always looking for enthusiastic people to join our volunteer team and in doing so… you’ll have a great day out.
Volunteering is a great way to be involved at an event if you are not a runner. Or if you are a runner but don't want to race, are injured or just want to check it out then you’re also welcome to volunteer.
"I found the volunteers extremely upbeat and supportive, thank you!" - Leanne Thomas (2016 participant)
Who are our volunteers?
They are people from all backgrounds who enjoy being part of great sporting events. Many of our volunteers are friends or family members of competitors and want to get involved and share the race-day experience, or they might belong to a local sporting club or community group.
What kind of commitment is involved?
Any time you can provide on race day is greatly appreciated, whether it is two hours or the whole morning. And you don’t have to commit to the whole series; even if you can only help out at one race that would be great.
The roles vary, and may include setting up infrastructure, helping with registration, manning water points and marshalling. We will allocate your role according to your experience, interest area and availability.
What can you expect in return for your time?
We'll provide snacks on the day and allocate each volunteer a job description, team leader and any equipment needed for your role. And… we guarantee you’ll have a great day!
