Leeds Half Marathon – call for volunteers

Following the success of the 2019 Run For All Event Season I am now beginning to prepare for another great year of events in 2020.

I would like to get in touch with you regarding volunteering opportunities at the Leeds Half Marathon, which in 2020 is taking place on Sunday 10th May.  As you can imagine, each year we require thousands of volunteers in a variety of roles to ensure our Run For All events go without a hitch and the participants have a fantastic time. It would be amazing to have your support whether that’s a group that can volunteer or individual volunteers; your support is greatly appreciated.

Firstly, let me introduce ourselves; Run For All is part of the lasting legacy of the late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE, who made headlines around the world by taking part in a series of incredible endurance events – despite being diagnosed with an incurable cancer. By 2007 her declining health meant she was unable to take part in any more extraordinary undertakings. However, using the money she raised on her epic American adventure, Jane was able to sow the seeds for the Run For All Leeds 10K – the cornerstone of what would become her continuing legacy.

Today that one run has grown Run For All into one of the UK’s biggest not-for-profit events companies, providing a fundraising vehicle for a huge number of local and national charities. Every year tens of thousands of people take part in our popular events – running for charity, for a personal challenge or just for fun.

Each year, we require thousands of volunteers in a variety of roles to ensure our Run For All events go without a hitch and the participants have a fantastic time. Your support really is greatly appreciated by all. Every volunteer will also receive a volunteer goody bag with a t-shirt and snacks for the morning.

We have a number of roles available on event day: 

  1. Route Marshals
  2. Baggage Marshals
  3. Drink Station Marshals
  4. Finish Processing Marshals – handing out water/finishers goody bags to the runners

If you would like further information on the roles available or if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, I am more than happy to help. We work with a number of local groups and it creates an valuable opportunity and experience to get involved with a community mass participant running event.

Once again, hundreds of Eventeers join our community each year and without you Run For All events would not be possible. Our Eventeers are ambassadors whose enthusiasm and commitment creates an atmosphere that sets out events apart from others – high quality, fun, For All.

Best wishes,

Danni
