Volunteer For Us

Volunteers, we need your help!

Any community event like us cannot happen without the help of volunteers. Volunteer posts vary in time so even if you have a couple of hours to offer we would love to have you!

Roles vary from welcome marshals, course marshals, baggage, waterstation and finish line volunteers.

Please click here or on the icon below and complete the registration form for this year (12th and 13th September). Once completed you will automatically be added to our volunteer list and our external volunteer coordinator will be in touch to provide you with all the info you need. We will allocate you the day and time of your choice.

If you have any questions please contact richmondrunfestvolunteers@gmail.com


It is with great sadness that due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold a mass gathering of volunteers after the event, therefore unfortunately this means we're unable to provide the hospitality that we normally would for our volunteers this year. We sincerely apologise for this!

This event couldn't happen without you and we can't wait to see you in September!

Event Crew T-shirt

This year, due to COVID we do not have any t-shirts but in line with our health and safety regulations we will be giving volunteers a buff and a drawstring sports bag.

Event Crew FAQ’s

What happens after I sign up?

Once you have signed up, our volunteer coordinator will be in touch via email to confirm that they have received your application. 

Can I bring a friend?

Of course you can, the more the merrier! However, please encourage them to sign up as well. 

What if I cannot attend?

If you are sadly no longer able to attend, please contact our volunteer coordinator via email as soon as possible so that other arrangements can be made. 

Is food provided?

All event crew will be given snacks at their post and a drink. There will also be a staff catering tent where you can help yourself to more snacks or a tea/coffee! 

How should I dress?

We usually have great weather for our event, however please come prepared for rain just in case and you may want to wear a jumper under your t-shirt as the morning can get a bit nippy!

What do I do if I do not receive my Race Crew confirmation e-mail or phone-call?

Please contact richmondrunfestvolunteers@gmail.com

What should I bring with me?

Please bring your mobile phone. We highly recommend bringing as few personal items as possible. We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.

What if I’m unable to stand for long periods of time?

Please state when you register if you have any disabilities or special requirements and we will do our very best to accommodate you.
