What will I be doing?

Our volunteers are right at the heart of Cancer Research UK's events and there are a wide range of roles and responsibilities for you to get involved with. Duties can include helping to set up marquees, marshalling and cheering across the course, organising our bag drop area and handing out finisher’s medals.

Why should I sign up?

  • No matter your role, your support will make a huge difference.
  • Cancer is happening right now, join in the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a valuable contribution to life saving research being carried out as we speak.
  • Volunteer roles at events are usually group activities and as such offer the perfect team building opportunity, whilst also doing something amazing for Cancer Research UK.
  • Our events are family friendly, so don’t lose out on family time and bring them along to volunteer alongside you.
  • Share your skills or learn something completely knew, you can vary your experience to suit you.

Where?

Our events take place across the UK from February right through until November. Simply search online to find your nearest Race for Life!

How much time will it take?

Whichever event you sign up to volunteer at, we'd need about 4 hours help as minimum requirement. The number of hours varies depending on which event you volunteer at. You can sign-up to more than one event if you want to; we are always in need of enthusiastic volunteers at CRUK events.

When can I volunteer?

Our events take place at the weekend, so either Saturday or Sunday. 

Who will I be volunteering with?

You'll have a great team of volunteers with you and you'll be supported by a Volunteer Manager on the day. There will be a team of event staff always on site to help brief, direct and guide you through your volunteering experience.
