Leader Positions Are Full But We Still Need Volunteers

Updated 12th August 2022

We’ve had an absolutely amazing response to the appeal for leaders and volunteers and are in a really enviable position with just over 3 weeks to go before the start of the next program.

There are a number of volunteer positions we would still like to fill and these are highlighted below. If you can help please complete the quick application form at this link.

When? The next program runs from 5th Sept to 12th Nov 2022

Event Coordinators

Two additional roles exist for people who are willing to give their time to come down to the park, unlock the container, set out the cones, speaker and microphone. You will play some tunes, organise run leaders and volunteers, give advice and deliver safety instructions to participants over our loud speaker system.
