The Swansea Half Marathon Needs You

volunteers at Swansea Half

The JCP Swansea Half Marathon is recruiting volunteers for the third outing of this hugely popular race and this important role will ensure a smooth delivery of the second biggest half marathon in Wales.

On 26 June 2016, around 8,000 runners will tackle a fast, flat PB potential course on closed roads that caters to beginners, charity runners and first time half marathon runners as well as the elite. For this to happen, the organisers need 200 volunteers for their ‘Race Maker’ teams to ensure runners and spectators alike have a memorable experience.

Endorsed by race technical director Nick Francis who said, “Signing up as a volunteer Race Maker is a great way to be part of race day and experience the action. Volunteer roles include start/finish race makers; on course race makers; runners village race makers and hydration & nutrition station race makers; and general race day support and assistance. 
"All roles require volunteers to have a spare 4 to 6 hours, bags of enthusiasm and a ‘can-do’ attitude. Swansea Army Cadet Force is a prime example having supported the half marathon on two previous occasions and will do so again this year. They set a good example to young people in the city."

Applications are welcome from individuals and local community groups and clubs who can assemble their own teams of Race Makers. In return, Swansea Half Marathon will donate to these organisations and provide all Race Makers with an event t-shirt (to be worn on the day) and refreshments.
