Why we need you:

We rely on every mile, every pound and every volunteer to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. This includes our Meet and Greet Volunteers, who are essential in making sure our runners receive the post-race treatment they deserve.

Volunteer at this event and help us save lives. For just half a day of volunteering, you’ll be helping us to raise vital funds for our pioneering, life-saving research.

Together we will beat cancer sooner!

What skills and attributes do you need to have?

  • Lots of enthusiasm.
  • Good interpersonal skills.

What will you be doing?

You will be located at the finish line as part of our Meet and Greet team, responsible for congratulating our runners and showing them over to our post-race reception where they will receive refreshments and a well-deserved massage.

Please feel free to bring friends and family along to help support the team and enjoy the event with you.

What support will you be given?

We’ll give you a free Cancer Research UK t-shirt to make sure you stand out in the crowd.

We’ll also provide you with snacks and on the day support through a Team Leader.

What benefits can you expect?

  • The satisfaction of making a vital difference to the life-saving work of Cancer Research UK and helping us to beat cancer sooner.
  • For anyone looking to get into events management or the charity sector, this is a great way to get an insight as to what’s involved at sports events and also develop your experience.
  • Meet new people and help us to ensure our inspirational runners have the best day possible.

Why we need you

Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour and every person. We need you to help us by volunteering. Play a part in this inspiring story and volunteer. Help us to create more tomorrows.
