Races like these would be impossible without the help of volunteers.
What do you get?
To encourage people to volunteer, we offer a range of benefits. If you volunteer to marshal at the 2019 Shropshire Way Ultra, you’ll receive:
A Shropshire Way Ultra Crew t-shirt
A Shropshire Way Ultra buff
Food and drink for the duration of the day
Priority entry and 75% off the entry fee for the following years race
What will you be doing?
There are a number of roles required to pull off the race, you could be helping out with any of the following:
Manning a feed station - helping runners fill water bottles and preparing the food options (cutting up bananas and oranges, or putting out fresh cake if it’s running low)
Course marshaling - being out on the course in a crucial position to ensure our runners go in the right direction or making sure they’re safe at road crossing points
Race HQ - helping out with registration before the race starts, taking competitors drop-bags and storing them appropriately in our drop-bag tent, handing out finishers t-shirts as runners cross the line
