Be part of the greatest race in the east

Lifestyle | Article

Volunteers will receive race clothing and training if they sign-up to act as race marshals for the return of this year’s Great Eastern Run in Peterborough on Sunday 14 October.

More than 3,000 runners took to the streets of Peterborough to participate in either the half-marathon or the five-kilometre fun run in 2006.

Thousands more lined the 13.1-mile route to cheer on those taking part in what was the largest race of its kind in the eastern region.

This year, race organisers are hoping to build on the success of the 2006 event and require an army of volunteers from 7 am in the morning until the race finishes. It is an excellent opportunity to be part of the greatest race in the east, receive free race clothing and a community sports leaders award. However, those wishing to become a marshal must be aged 16 years and over.

Volunteers will be responsible for manning the route and communicating with runners and the public. They will be fully briefed and will be working alongside Cambridgeshire Constabulary and employees from Peterborough City Council to maintain the safety of everyone involved.

“This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in one of the biggest sporting events in the region,” said Tim Quy, area sports officer at Peterborough City Council. “Volunteers should be available for an early start on the day of the race and will be provided with all the necessary kit and equipment.”

For further information on how to become a volunteer, contact Tim Quy on (01733) 747474 or email [email protected].
