Spectators welcome

We are holding some fantastic events this year which will be a great opportunity not only for the competitors, but for the whole communities surrounding the events. There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into organising these events and volunteers and marshals are a crucial element to the success of the day.

Being part of the volunteer team can involve route marshaling, manning aid stations, pre and post-race set up… and everything in between! In addition to this, your encouragement and enthusiasm to both the athletes and the team is invaluable! It’s a great personal reward for you and makes a huge difference to the athletes on the day.

There’s some great benefits to being a marshal for Activity Wales Events including:

FREE volunteer event t-shirt
FREE packed lunch & drink (dietary requirements will be catered for)

As extra incentive, groups of 10 or more volunteers will get £200 towards their chosen team, club or charity! If you are supporting an athlete at the event or simply would just love to be involved, please register your details by clicking the button below, and registering your interest for the relevant events.

For more information about volunteering, please call 01437 765777 or email [email protected]
