“A superb event which was brilliantly organised. Much credit due to the volunteer marshals who were everywhere ensuring runners were well supported."
Race Crew - Volunteer roles that need filling
Would you like to be part of the excitement of the day but don't want to run? Why not volunteer to help make the event a success? It takes hundreds of people to ensure the event runs smoothly, so becoming a Jersey Marathon volunteer means you play an active role in the overall success of the event, whilst also allowing you to support your friends, family and charity teams.
Positions that need filling on the day are:
Course Marshals - making sure the runners stay safely on the course. We require approximately 160 volunteer marshalls to operate the event safely, so please support the event and its good causes.
Water Station Teams - managing and supplying much needed water for the thirsty runners. We require approximately 60 volunteers (12 teams of 5 or more people) to operate these crucial runner support areas.
Start / Finish Stewards - counting them out and counting them back in! We require approximately 20 volunteers to assist at the start and finish.
Massage Therapists - we require professional qualified massage services at three of our four relay changeover points. St Ouen and two stations at Les Quennevais.
Fitness Instructors - In order to conduct warm up sessions for the Relay Race runners at each of the four relay change over points.
You don't need any experience to take part in the Jersey Marathon as a volunteer. You just need between 4-7 hours free on Race Day and be willing to join in the fun. We will provide full training and you will receive a marathon marshall t-shirt and packed lunch in 2017.
Volunteers should be over the age of 18 on the day of the race or should be part of a recognised group under the supervision of a leader over the age of 18.
