Team Reading – Help support the Reading Half Marathon 2020 – 05/04/20

Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Reading Voluntary Action (RVA)

Each year Reading Half Marathon attracts 1000’s of runners from across the UK and beyond, from serious runners looking for personal bests to costumed fun runners soaking up the atmosphere. The race has become part of the fabric of the town with crowds of supporters coming out to cheer on runners as they make their way around the town towards the finish line at the Madjeski stadium.

The Marathon also provides opportunities for charities, including some local charities, to become partners, creating an opportunity to raise funds and benefit from additional publicity. As part of the partnership, charities are asked to be part of the day by providing volunteers to support race stewarding, cheer points and water station stops.

Reading Voluntary Action are supporting the recruitment of volunteers for two local charities. This is your chance to be part of the Reading Half Marathon without breaking a sweat!

Sign-up by completing the registration form HERE and join up with a local charity on the day!
