VOLUNTEERS – YOUR EVENT NEEDS YOU!
Our running events could not take place without volunteers. They play key roles in delivering a fun event which the runners love to come back to again & again. We are building a network of volunteers for our events in 2016. So if you want an opportunity to help continue the fantastic atmosphere of our events then read on, because here is your chance!
The Windsor Running Festival weekend commences with the Running4women Windsor 10k on the Saturday and volunteers are needed for this event also. You can chooses to do either event or both if you are feeling energetic!
VOLUNTEER ROLES & OPPORTUNITIES
- COURSE MARSHALS
These volunteers are positioned at key points on the course to visually & verbally direct the runners the right way. Course marshals are all fully briefed on their duties before the race starts & will have written instructions in case of emergencies.
- BAGGAGE MARQUEE VOLUNTEERS
One of the busiest areas of the event at key times before and after the races, volunteers here will help keep queues and consequent waiting times down by helping runners identify their bags and storing/retrieving them quickly and efficiently.
- START GATE & FINISH FUNNEL VOLUNTEERS
Volunteers at these two stations will help the runners find their correct Start Gate to ensure a smooth start to race, and once the race has started these volunteers move to the Finish funnels to hand out medals, water and other goodies, plus a good measure of enthusiasm to the tired runners!
All volunteers will need to be enthusiastic, helpful and willing to lend a hand to make the experience of the runners a positive and happy one at our events.
All volunteers at the event will receive a packed lunch – volunteering can be a hungry business! Also as a “thank you” for your time and effort each volunteer will receive our Windsor Running Festival Volunteer T-shirt – a great memento which will mark you out as a fantastic community helper who has helped to put something back into a local running event & help fellow runners or locals.
