Start Fundraising


Not running, but would still like to be involved?

Become a  Volunteer!

Over 400 volunteers will be required to ensure every runner has the best possible experience on race day. We could not deliver this event without them and their incredible drive and passion, especially at that time in the morning!

We require volunteers in the week leading up to the event and over the event weekend.  Roles include registering athletes, aid stations, road marshalls, assistance with event set up and pack down as well as manning the all important information desks.

You can volunteer as part of a group, such as Salvation Army, or as an individual and every volunteer receives a donation towards their cause and a t-shirt.  It is a great way for your organisation to do some fundraising!  Please see below a list of areas that we will need volunteers for.  The number in brackets is the number of volunteers required. As groups choose an area, we will update it on the website.

If you would be interested in volunteering in 2019 please email [email protected].
