A small army of volunteers is needed to make The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon and James Potter Eggs Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay happen and ensure the participants have a fantastic time. We would like to thank you for your interest in event day volunteering - we couldn't do it without you!
It's not just the Yorkshire Marathon events that are new for 2013, we are also pleased to introduce "Eventeers" - our scheme to formally recognise our commitment to the people who give their time to support us through volunteering.
Whether you're volunteering on behalf of one of our partner charities, a group or organisation or simply for yourself, The Yorkshire Marathon Team will be very grateful for your support and so will thousands of participants.
Who can volunteer?
Everyone is welcome to volunteer with us, the only recommendation we make is that volunteers are aged over 16 to volunteer independently (14 and 15 year olds can volunteer with a supervising parent/guardian).
What roles are available?
Volunteers are needed for a variety of roles including:
- Route Marshals
- Senior Marshals
- Drink Station Marshals
- Baggage Store Marshals
- Race Office
You just need lots of enthusiasm and a proactive attitude, excellent communications skills and to enjoy working as part of a team and you can help ensure a positive experience for our thousands of runners.
Benefits of volunteering?
- Meeting new people
- Helping local and national charities
- Supporting and improving the experience of our thousands of participants
Refreshments will be provided during your shift and in addition to a huge thank you from The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon Team, all volunteers will receive an electronic certificate of appreciation after the event. A reward and recognition document will also follow shortly as part of our "Eventeers" scheme.
