Volunteer marshal

Have fun and help support our events!

Join the marshalling team at KRR

In order to put on great races, we always need volunteers to help marshal the courses and run our aid stations. Without them we simply could not have our races. Join the team, meet new and old friends, cheer on the runners while keeping them safe and topped up with fuel and water.

We will look after you in return, hopefully giving you a great experience, and some goodies at await you at the end. 

Marshal Code of Conduct

– Be supportive and offer encouragement to runners

– Diligent, assertive and proactive to help make the event special and safe
– Representing the race and company in a professional and courteous manner

What we're looking for from our marshals

We have many different requirements for marshalling at our events. We often need a large number of marshals to help make our events safe and enjoyable for all involved.

Course marshals help give participants guidance, aid station marshals help with fuelling the runners, and road marshals often provide an extra pair of eyes to cross critical sections on the course.

Each event is different, however they all involve a Love Station™! The  Love Station has become a favourite place for our runners, as it normally signifies they are approaching the finish line…ish. Our normal Love Station is filled with goodies, drinks, beer or cider, and a shot or two! We have music playing and it is a chance for the runners to recharge their batteries. Most importantly, it is a chance for us as marshals to check that everyone is doing okay. Offering support, maybe a chance for a time out or just a shoulder to cry on.

We also have other aid stations on some of our races that can be purely just offering refreshments and some with a few nibbles.

At some of our races we also require road marshals. This would be to ensure that our runners can cross safely.

All our marshals are provided with hi-vis, and full training where necessary is given on the day.

What we need from you

  • If you can volunteer at a race, then please let us know. Even if it’s only for a couple of hours, we plan cover around who is available.
  • Let us know if you’re First Aid trained and the expiry date of your training. At each aid station we like to ensure that someone has some experience to help a runner out if in need. If you haven’t been trained then this is not an issue; we still would like your help.
  • Best way to contact you. Our main contact is via our Facebook Group, for those not on there we can email/message or WhatsApp you.
  • Once we have your details we will hold onto them and may contact you again in the future to see if you are available to help at other events
  • Last, we want you to have some fun too! There maybe a chance to dress us (not obligatory) if there’s a theme for the event. 

How we’ll support you

  • Encourage you to join Facebook Event to see information and engage before race day.
  • Pre-event information given to you on duties.
  • On-the-day event briefing instructions, explanations and map (if applicable).
  • Paired/grouped with experienced marshals if new to helping us.
  • PPE and high-vis jackets provided for your safety.
  • Provide basic First Aid kit and required paperwork for reporting details of an incident.

Prior to the race we will be in contact to confirm that you are still available and provide details of time to meet at Race Admin for further instruction.

Where possible written instructions will be sent prior to the event so that you can make yourself aware and understand what you will be doing.

What do you get in return?

As a thank you for marshalling at our events, we will provide you with a money-off voucher that can be used at our food providers for either food or drink.

Also during the event, where possible, we will provide hot drinks and food. 

Best of all, volunteer with us twice and you will be provided with a ‘Free Race Code’.
