Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon 2024 – Volunteering

Half Marathon
We are now a few months away from our annual charity half marathon and the main event put on by the club each year since 1983. To be held 9:00am Sunday February 18th 2024
You may know me already in my guise as propping up the bar and Bengal Brasserie, silly social events and loving cross country, but I’m also the the volunteer coordinator for this event.
I’m responsible for corralling as many of you and other organisations together as possible so we can put this event on.
Especially for those newer to the club, its hard to express just how many people it takes to put this event on. Just for example we have 150 marshal positions around the course, well over half of our club membership count.
You may be aware it is a Kent Grand Prix event again in 2024 and we’re defending our title, as a newer member you may want to run the event anyway.
What we ask is that you have a think about what you can do as a club member to help out the event. If you really want to race, why not ask a non-harrier or family member over the Christmas period if they can help out in your place.
If you want to know more about what you can do, have a skim through this as it covers all the different positions I’ll be asking for help with. Better yet, come bother me on a Wednesday night and I can tell you more.
I’ll be sending out a form in the new year so you can confirm what you can do
I look forward to hearing from you! 
(this was the calm before the storm, race morning in the HQ 2020, ironically there was a storm outside)
