The Brighton Marathon weekend is looking for volunteers this April to help deliver and be part of one of Europe’s largest and most exciting events.

The all-embracing three-day running event will take place from Friday 10 to Sunday 12, April, and is comprised of the marathon exhibition, the mini mile races, the BM10k and the marathon itself.

The weekend is renowned for its fantastic atmosphere and over 150,000 spectators who come out to show their support for the runners 10k and marathon on the Sunday.

As part of Team Brighton Marathon, volunteers not only play a vital part in helping each and every runner to the finish line, they also give something back to the wider community.

There is a range of exciting volunteer roles available to choose from across the week leading up to the event, the weekend itself and the week after.

Part of a club or team? Why not take on a drinks station? With this year set to be a record year for participants, teams of volunteers are needed to give out drinks on course to help rehydrate our thirsty runners.

There are also opportunities to join the course marshals team, be part of the call centre at the race HQ, drive an event vehicle or hand out medals and goody bags at the finish.

In a recent Runners World survey, Brighton Marathon achieved the highest satisfaction rating for a UK marathon of 95 per cent, with volunteer support being noted as invaluable.
