VOLUNTEERS

The Marysville Marathon is a success only because of its volunteers.

Come and join our amazing group of volunteer helpers who do an incredible job in a variety of roles. As a volunteer, it is so exciting to know that you have played a part in encouraging competitors to keep going and achieve their personal goal. The runners love you!!

A BIG THANK YOU to all the many people who have helped out over the past 9 years. You have helped Trailsplus to support the rebuilding of this beautiful community.

Sign up as an individual, or gather a group of friends together.

Local clubs receive a donation of $100 per adult when their members volunteer for the day.  

Gather as many enthusiastic members as you can from your local club or organisation and register to help.

You will raise funds for your club and provide invaluable assistance to the race participants AND you will have loads of fun!

WHAT ROLES CAN I DO?

All volunteers receive a volunteer pack which includes specific instructions and maps for their role.

MEDALS

One of the best jobs of the day!!  Cheer the runners as they cross the finish line then hand them a medal for their great effort.

REGISTRATION

Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.  Tick runners off a check-in list and hand out their race bibs.  Sign up new runners who enter on the day. Your team leader will help you get started.

Working in teams of 2 works best – 1 ticks the name while the other fetches the bib.

AID STATION

Collect some gear and head out on course. Keep food and drink stocked up on the table for the runners as they pass  through. Then bring all the gear back again when the runners have all passed by.

Don’t forget to cheer the runners and encourage them to keep going!

MERCHANDISE

Sell t-shirts and other race gear to runners and supporters.  Hand out runners’ pre-ordered items.

Saturday team sets up the store and Sunday team packs up.

PHOTOGRAPHY

You don’t have to be a professional, just need to enjoy taking photos.

Take photos at the finish line, out on course or catch the supporters in action around Gallipoli Park.

SETUP and PACKUP

Come on Saturday and be part of a team that sets up marquees, fencing, banners and flags.

Then on Sunday afternoon, team up again to pull it all down.

 

MARSHAL

Stand at an intersection and make sure runners head down the right track. We don’t want any runners getting lost, and they will love you for keeping them on track!
