Volunteering

Without the small army of volunteers who help out at our races, we would not be as successful at putting on great events. We would like to reward and recognise the dedication of those volunteers who come and make the runners’ experience a great one.

 

If you volunteer at our events you will earn 1 Volunteer Point (VP) for every 2 hours you give, so if you worked 10 hours at a race you would earn 5 VPs.

 

We want your help even if you can only spare a few hours at a time. Obviously the longer you give us the greater the reward.

 

VPs can be cashed in towards entries into ANY of our races, you don't have to volunteer for the race you want to run and miss it to earn a space the following year. You can simply work on some of our other races and save the points to pay for ANY race.

 

Each race has a set entry cost in VPs – please see the table below for these amounts.

 

You can also cash the VPs in towards the cost of a race if you have not got enough points to cover the full entry. For this purpose, each VP is worth around £5 towards the entry fee. This can vary depending on race.

 

If you wish to spend your VPs on a race, simply email us and we will book you onto that event. We will store all your details on a spreadsheet and log your points on there.

 

Check the volunteer page of each event to see which jobs are available at that event.

 

If you wish to volunteer for an event we are always happy to book up volunteers well in advance, please email me volunteers@challenge-running.co.uk.
