CAN YOU SPARE JUST ONE MORNING THIS YEAR TO HELP YOUR CLUB?

Can you spare a morning to help the club by volunteering as a marshal at the Chester Half Marathon this year on Sunday 21st May?

We need as many volunteers as possible for this event as it results in important support from the race organisers which is used towards equipment and facilities costs etc, helping us to keep subscriptions down.

Volunteers will be allocated to one of three zones which West Cheshire has responsibility for. Detailed arrangements will be confirmed closer to the time but individuals will be asked to help between approximately 08:15 and 12:30.

If you are able to bring friends or family to help too the extra hands would be hugely appreciated. Children are welcome but please let me know if you will have any under 16s with you so that we can allocate to suitable positions.

All volunteer marshals receive a full race goody bag, including technical t-shirt and light refreshments. Please email Ian at: [email protected] and include β€˜Chester Half 2023’ in the subject line if you could help.
