Volunteers

Putting on any race event requires support from many volunteers helping with everything from assisting with registrations, running water stations, marshalling or making teas and coffees.  Whilst we encourage all our members to help with the organisation and safe running of this event we’d love help from non-members too. If you are able to spare a few hours on 13 October and would like to support us please email running@thesaxons.org.uk with your contact details.
