Trafford Schools Cross-country Needs Marshalls and Course Assemblers
Marshalls and course assemblers needed for Trafford Schools Cross-country. Saturday November 25th and December 9th.
During the winter Trafford host several cross-country races for local primary and secondary school children. It's a great way to provide them with competition experience and, if they like it, to introduce them to the club. It is completely run by volunteers and organised by Sue Exon. We need volunteers to set the course up and/or marshal the race.
Setting up the course involves walking the 1km loop and placing stakes and tape to guide the competitors. You will be with someone that knows the route. You would need to be at the Trafford track at 9:15.
Marshalling requires you to stand at a point on the course for around 90 minutes and direct the runners from there. You would need to be at the Trafford track at 10:00.
Races start at 10:30 and finish at midday.
All volunteers get a free hot drink , a sense of community spirit and possibly the first glimpse of the next Paula Radcliffe!
It's easy to presume there would be lots of volunteers for this, but actually at most races we're so stretched there's no one from the club available to recruit the enthusiastic youngsters. If you’re interested or would just like more information please chat to Sue Exon on a training night or email her with email@example.com
