The annual Abingdon Marathon takes place this year on Sunday, the 22nd October.
Abingdon parkrun has provided volunteer marshals in previous years, and, by way of thanks, the organisers have donated to parkrun funds. This has proved an important resource for our event, enabling the purchase of a defibrillator, and replacing the aging laptop computer we rely upon for getting our results processed each week, both without needing to appeal to our runners for donations.
The Marathon organisers still need a large number of Marshals for this year's event, so if you were able to volunteer to help, you would be supporting this prestigious, local running event, and at the same time, you would be helping Abingdon parkrun.
If you can assist, please register your offer of help at the Abingdon Marathon website, on the "Contact Us" page, picking the subject "AM - Offering Help":
Please fill-in the message section with the name 'Abingdon parkrun' so the organisers can register our involvement.
Many thanks for considering helping Abingdon parkrun by volunteering to marshal at this important event.
