Volunteer support is critical for pretty much any event these days – the Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs included. We would be most grateful if you, friends or family would be prepared to support the athletes in this event. We know from experience that friendly and supportive volunteers make a huge difference to the outcome of the event and the enjoyment of the entrants.
In return for volunteering we would like to offer a free ticket to the Community Teams dinner which takes place a few weeks after the event, and a home-made pizza and drinks dinner and briefing usually on the Tuesday night of evet week. We provide a volunteer event bib to wear and keep as a souvenir too, and there’s likely to be other surprises along the way.
At the inaugural 2011 event (5km and 10km only and just 178 entrants) we required 4 volunteers. That grew to about 100 in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Duties range from general marshal points on course, drink station attendants, gate keepers, traffic control personnel, bib number checkers, baggage handlers, registration assistants, medal givers, pacers, sweepers, cyclist leaders and more.
If interested then please fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch.
