Free Entry to Henley Running Festival
We are always looking for volunteers to help marshal the course during our event.
We will offer a free 8 person team entry to any charity, group, organisation or running club who can fill one of our 5 marshalling stations for 24 hours. This means we will give you a marshal station, and it will be your responsibility to have a marshal in place for the whole 24 hours.
You can set up a tent or gazebo, put your charity or running club banners or flags or lights up, play music, you can do as much or as little are you want, but you have to find enough volunteers or team members who are happy to cover that position for the 24 hour period.
It would be your responsibility to work out the shifts and rotas each volunteer would work, and we would let you run the marshal station as you see fit (FYI Only we recommend 3 hour shifts, so 8 volunteers doing a 3 hour shift each, or 4 volunteers doing a 2x 3 hour shifts).
The only condition we have is that you must have somebody in place, wearing a yellow high-visibility jacket (which we will provide) for the whole 24 hours.
In return, we will provide free entry for 8x solo runners, or 4x pairs runners, or 1x 8 person team for the event (or any other combo you can think of which equates to 8 participants). We will also provide free camping for up-to 8 volunteers and also we will provide 8 free meal tickets (drinks not included) so volunteers can have a meal before or after their stint.
Each volunteer station will be provided with an info pack containing exact details of what to do in an emergency, and given the telephone numbers of our medical teams etc. We will also provide a 15 minute period every 3 hours where we will transport one person to and from their volunteer station in a golf buggy.
Sorry but we can only offer one free place per running club, group or organisation.
If you would like more information, have any questions, or would like to take advantage of our free entry offer, please email email@example.com.
Alternatively, if you’d just like to volunteer because you’re a great person, we’d love you to join us – we can offer you free entry to another Run101 event in the future as a thank you, just drop us a line!
