Want to be part of the day but don't want to run? Then become part of our dedicated volunteering team and be one of our exceptional Reading Half Marathon Volunteers
Being a volunteer will be extremely rewarding, it's a chance to meet new friends and like minded people but it is not for the faint hearted. It can be a long, tiring day and come rain or shine we will need your support to help make this fabulous event happen.
On the day thousands of runners will take part in this iconic event, taking in the sights of Reading, as well as raising thousands of pounds for local, national and international charities and we need you to help them on their journey.
There are a number of different roles that we will be looking to fill for Race Day and the week leading up to the race. We have roles for individuals who want to volunteer, called “Race Makers” or we have the opportunity for groups to volunteer together, as a “Volunteer Team”.
Here is an example of just some of the roles on the day:
Volunteer Team Leader
Finish Line Assistant
VIP Team Leader
Corporate Challenge Team Leader
Volunteer Race Makers must be a minimum of 16yrs of age on Race Day.
If you are interested in being part of a volunteer group, whether you are a local business, sports club or group of friends who want to get involved and support the race.
Here are some examples of possible roles on the day:
Route Team Leader
Route Water Station Team Member
Start Line Team Member
In signing up to become a volunteer, you must be available for the whole of Race Day and at least one training session prior to Race Day. Team Leaders will be required to attend two training sessions and participate as a Leader in the second session.
Goldline is committed to creating the best runner experience in all of our events – as a volunteer you can expect the same commitment: we will train you to be the best you can be in your role, provide you with the equipment you need to fulfil your role and ensure you have the best experience of the day.
We are looking for long term commitment and that means we want to see you next year!
