We’re run by volunteers.
We’re a not-for-profit organisation, so we rely on our members to volunteer at events. Every event we hold needs volunteers to make sure everyone has a safe, enjoyable run. Volunteers help in many ways including course setup, timing, registrations, marshalling, plus many other duties. Volunteering is rewarding in many ways. It’s a great way to meet other Club runners and be part of a friendly community.
Of course if you would like to try new positions we also encourage that. Check here to see the different positions available and what’s required.
