Reading Half Marathon helpers needed! 19/03/2017

Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Cancer Research UK in RG2

Cancer Research UK is currently looking to recruit event volunteers for the Reading Half Marathon event on Sunday 19 March. We’re after some enthusiastic people to help with marshalling on the course.

You will be responsible for directing the runners, answering any questions they have and cheering them on! This crucial role ensures the event runs smoothly and participants feel motivated.

All volunteers will receive a T-shirt as well as refreshments to keep them going throughout the day. You will have support from a team leader and section leader throughout the time you are there.

Our participants really appreciate all our volunteers and these events simply wouldn’t be the same without them.
