Volunteers are often the people who make an event!
They’re the people our participants see out on the course cheering them on, they’re those lifesavers at the checkpoint helping fill up their water bottles or the superstars placing a medal around their neck at the finish line.
Volunteers are a big part of the events at Race Harborough and we want you to feel valued and part of the Race Harborough team.
Race Harborough will be offering the following events for 2023:
The Battle of Brampton Valley Way, Run Rabbit Trail Festival (Trail Mix Challenge, Headlight Hop, Thump Trail Half, Quest for the Golden Carrot), Foxton Hound Ultra, Festival of Cycling, Tunnel Vision (Night and Dawn) and the Santa Run.
In return for offering your services as a volunteer at any of the above Race Harborough events, you will be granted credit to your Let’s Do This account which can be used against any Race Harborough event. The credit will be applied to your email address post-race and will be issued as follows:
- Up to 3 hours volunteering – £20 credit
- Up to 6 hours volunteering – £35 credit
- 6+ hours volunteering – £50 credit
If you are tail walking or pacing at an event, instead of receiving credit, you will receive free entry for the event at which you’re tail walking or pacing.
We will provide all volunteers with a hi-viz jacket and lanyard on arrival. Those volunteering for more than 5 hours will also receive food and drink as well as bundles of appreciation from our participants for helping them to achieve their goals!
Details of what is required for the role will be communicated in the run up to the event via email. On the day communication will take place through a group WhatsApp message.
