Event Volunteer - Sheffield Half Marathon and 10K 2020

This opportunity takes place between 23 Dec 2019 and 28 Sep 2020.

Come and be part of our fun and friendly Eventeers (Event Volunteers) team; help our runners have a fantastic experience at the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday 29th March and the Sheffield 10K on Sunday 27th September and help support countless of good causes. Our events simply could not happen without our Eventeers so, whether you are encouraging participants out on course as route marshal, manning a drink station whilst helping to refuel runners or offering support in the event village, you can be certain you’ll make a difference! The impact of what you do is felt far beyond the start line on race day and we know so many will be grateful of your support and words of encouragement along the way.
