Race Day Marshal 2021

This opportunity takes place on 26 Sep 2021.

The Snowdrop Project has the Sheffield Half Marathon and 10k race on Sunday 26th of September. We must provide 40 marshals across the two events to help out on the race day and cheer the runners along the course! There are two shifts: shift 1 - 5 hours 45 minutes, shift 2 – 4 hours. There's a great atmosphere and it's inspiring to watch people push themselves for causes that matter to them. It's a great way to support Snowdrop in a one-off volunteering opportunity.
