Would you like to take part in the 2018 London Marathon? Well if you didn't get a place then you can still get involved by joining the Greenwich parkrun team volunteering at the start.
What's involved? You will be helping out on the baggage trucks. Taking the bags from the runners and putting them in the truck. Simple!
Where is it? We'll be based in Blackheath.
When? 22 April 2018.
What time? Your help will be needed between 7am and 10.30am on the day leaving you lots of time to watch the rest of the marathon or you could pop over to Blackheath or Greenwich afterwards for brunch.
Can non-parkrunners join the team? Yes! Friends and family are more than welcome to join our team. The only prerequisite is that they're aged 18 or above - sorry no under 18s.
What's in it for me? Well apart from a great morning providing support to over 30,000 runners you'll get a London Marathon t-shirt! Also, if you volunteer at Greenwich parkrun you'll also be entered into Greenwich parkrun ballot to win one of our guaranteed places in the 2019 London Marathon (the exact number of places we have will depend on the number of volunteers in our team).
OK, how do I get involved? Please email us a at Greenwichhelpers@parkrun.com and let us know what size t-shirt you will require (S, M, L or XL).In addition, if you didn't volunteer with us last time then you'll need to send in a passport style photo, which meets the following criteria
- The photo's digital size must be more than 100KB (photos taken on phone should still be acceptable, but just double check the file size)
- Photo will need to be one of the following file types - GIF, JPEG, JPG or PNG
- Head & shoulders only (and no hats or sunglasses)
- Preferably a plain background (as much as possible)
- Please do not take a photo of a photo – must be an original image
We will be in touch closer to the time with further details.
We've been asked to provide a team of 60 people, which we achieved last year. With your help we can match that again this year.
