We have something for everyone, from being the first to greet thousands of participants, cheering them on as they take on the course, or handing out their hard earned finisher gear as they cross the finish line. Whatever you do as a volunteer, you’ll be at the heart of it all, creating life-changing experiences for everyone – including yourself.
You can browse all the available roles before you commit to anything. Every volunteer receives transferable priority registration for next year's race.
