All the team - volunteers, management, team leaders - are all such a supportive, helpful team that to me, it feels like a yearly 'family' gathering, and even more special when we meet new volunteers. We all work hard in our huge array of roles to make the Brighton Marathon Weekend the success it is and have fun along the way.”
