Boxing Day Volunteer positions and time and instructions:
23 December 2022 - By James Attenborough
Firstly, thank you all for volunteering to help out at the BD5 – without you we would not have a race at all. There’s been a slight reshuffle since my post earlier today on Facebook.
Below is a:
- List of Volunteers and your roles. This also shows the time we’ll need you at the Rugby Club to collect your bib and move to your position etc
- Course Map and Marshal positions
- Marshall roles at the positions
Course set up: Please ensure the race parking signs are done first.
Please can all volunteers park at the football club to allow the car park for the Van, coffee man, first aider and timing company.
Parking for the runners will be at the Leisure Centre and the Hockey pitches car park, David Carey is the lead. Please ensure all runners are directed to the car parks and then If they fill up, then to park courteously on local roads. I suggest filling the Leisure Centre first then the Hockey pitches car park. Please ensure they are with the race before they park.
Please get to the Rugby club to get your high viz jacket then once Ian has done the Marshal briefing (9am) feel free to grab yourself a coffee (the club is funding one free drink for every volunteer, please mention you’re a member of WRC!) before heading to your position. Please ensure you are all in position at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the race unless your position stipulates earlier. For those in cars, car 1 and car 2, please organise the driver between you.
Please also collect any litter you may see runners dropping. (perhaps keep a small bin bag in your pocket).
If you need to leave whilst the race is on, please park on the local roads.
The First Aiders have a full list of your contact numbers and positions on the road, so if you do ever have to call them quote your name and Marshall position for clarity.
The weather forecast is currently set to be grey and cold so make sure you dress accordingly.
Also please also remember we have a lot of non-affiliated runners who may be interested in joining us please let them know we offer a 50% discount on membership until the end of March. Therefore just £15 after their free trial.
Finally, the more volunteers we have help cleaning the quicker we can all go home/to the pub! If you can stay to help with the clean-up, please bring your cleaning equipment if you can help!
Any questions – just ask.
A finally – have a fabulous Christmas Day!!
