All Windmiler events need the generous help of a team of marshals and volunteers to make sure things run smoothly.

For example, the monthly 3 mile handicap that's staged through the summer months needs marshals at every turn around the course to make sure runners don't head off down the wrong tracks! This race also needs an overall race coordinator, people to hand out race numbers and start times, plus a couple of timekeepers. Once the race is over the results have to be calculated and prizes awarded. So you can see even the smallest races need a considerable number of helpers.

There are plenty of other events which need volunteers, not just races. Most of them are good fun to be a part of, and will also help ensure you're eligible for the club's ballot for London Marathon places (if that's something that appeals).

So if you feel you are able to volunteer then please email the Events Coordinator Craig Nicol so that he has your name for future reference.
