Come along to support the athletes

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 an extra incentive, groups of 10 or more volunteers will get £200 towards their chosen team, club or charity!
