Event description

Description

Get involved with Virgin Sport and the local host community in Oxford. It takes a village to make our events incredible, and everyone is welcome to join us. There are lots of roles available during on event day, so there is something to suit everyone!

What do I get in return?

In return for giving us your time, we'll give you breakfast or lunch, a Virgin Sport event cap and FREE entry into a Virgin Sport event within one year (subject to minimum age limits that apply to each of our events).

How old do I need to be to volunteer?

Volunteers must be 13 years or older. All volunteers aged 13-17 must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver. Those aged 13-15 must be accompanied by an adult volunteer on the day.

What time do I need to be there?

Most volunteers will be required to sign in at around 07.00 (timings to be confirmed shortly).

Roles include....

Help Desk Assistant - Help Desk assistants ensure runners are ready to tackle their events by answering any and all queries from both participants and spectathletes. You should be computer savvy in this role!

Information/ Arrivals Marshal - You're the fountain of all knowledge, welcoming runners and answering any questions they might have about the event. Show them the red-hot Virgin spirit by ensuring they know where to drop their bags and know how to get to the start

Course Marshal - Be on the front line of the course as you marshal a section of the route. Perfect for those who have running experience and like to cheer, as they know just what support the runners need! You must be 18 or over to take on this role.

Schools' Challenge/Finish Marshal - In this double role, you'll help register the schools and ensure they're ready for the race, then will enourage the runners and be our eyes in the finish and rewards areas, spotting any issues and calling on assistance where required

Rewards Marshal - Be one of the first to congratulate each runner crossing the finish line by awarding them their medal and handing out water, swag bags and other delightful surprises. Perfect for those volunteers under 18

Event Cyclist - Encouraging the participants from both ends of the race, you'll be in radio contact with event control and providing support to the runners

Volunteer Receptionist - The first volunteers to check in, you'll be helping check in your fellow volunteers and ensure they have everything they need for the day ahead

Water Station or Baggage Groups - Perfect if you can gather a team of 15+. You'll be keeping our runners hydrated by handing out that all important water at a drink station out on the course - and cheering 'em on! Or we'll put your organisational skills to the test in the runner bag drop area within the race village. To register a group, please email volunteers@virginsport.com for the group-specific registration form.
