Volunteer to be a Marshal

Thank you for considering volunteering for Race4Men, we couldn’t do it without our wonderful volunteer Marshals!

We would love you to volunteer if you are able to give your undivided attention to the race and competitors.  The course runs around Plock Court field and around Estcourt and Tewkesbury Road. Marshals will be deployed throughout the route to monitor and assist runners wherever necessary. By volunteering you are playing a very important role in making the event as safe and as much fun for everyone as possible. You will be asked to go to a certain part of the course and Marshal that area for the duration of the event following a marshal’s briefing and issue of instruction packs.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee which area of the course you will be placed. You are welcome to be accompanied by one or more other companions, who will be able to stand in for you should you wish to take a comfort break, but we must advise against bringing children or pets if you do not have a companion who will be able to take responsibility for them, as you may be required to assist a runner in the race.

At 9:00 a meeting starts in the marquee on the field, please be there for the start of the briefing. We may have a pre-event meeting for which your attendance will be welcomed.

Please consider bringing an umbrella, a waterproof coat, depending on the weather (rain or full sun) you may also bring a fold up chair if you wish.

Please have a well charged mobile phone with you in case you need to call the Race Director. If you have a different mobile number to the one on your form, please let us know on the morning of the race. You will be given a Hi Vis tabard and a marshal information pack with the route and the marshal positions. The race goes from Plock Court Field along Estcourt Road and Tewkesbury Road back into Plock Court field.

If you are coming to stand in a group, only one of the group registers as a volunteer. Remember, we can only allocate final positions on the morning, this allocation will take place at 9:00.

To register to volunteer please complete the form below ( but please let us know if you are subsequently unable to attend) thank you!
