Welcome to the team

Come and be part of our fun and friendly team; help our runners have a fantastic experience and support countless good causes!

Our events simply could not happen without our Eventeers so, whether you are encouraging participants out on course as route marshal, manning a drink station whilst helping to refuel runners or offering support in the event village, you can be certain you’ll make a difference!

The impact of what you do is felt far beyond the start line on race day and we know so many will be grateful of your support and words of encouragement along the way.
