One of London’s biggest half marathon events is seeking volunteers for the 2014 race. Organisers of the Ealing Half Marathon are currently recruiting volunteers for event which takes place in West London for the third time on Sunday 28 September.
All volunteers will receive a free breakfast, t-shirt, memento medal and training top. Free race places for the Ealing Half Marathon 2015 are also up for grabs for any volunteers who feel inspired to run the 13.1 miles after experiencing the unique race day atmosphere this year.
500 volunteer places are available on race day including race marshals, water station teams, baggage co-ordinators, race village co-ordinators, race pacers and traffic co-ordinators. The training sessions for volunteers take place during the week and at weekends in the two weeks leading up to race day, with volunteers requested to attend one session to receive the full brief and details.
The organisers are also keen to hear from community groups, clubs and charities who can organise a team of volunteers in return for a financial contribution as well as exposure and promotion at the event.
Event co-ordinator Sandra Courtney commented: “Volunteers are a key part of the Ealing Half Marathon, with each and every one of them actively contributing to the event.
“Volunteering is a great opportunity to feel part of the event and to meet new like-minded people, and it is also a fun and rewarding experience. Anyone wishing to show their support for the event and to get involved just needs to complete the volunteers form on the website and then someone from the team will get in touch with them.”
