Volunteer support is critical for pretty much any event these days – the Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs included. We would be most grateful if you, friends or family would be prepared to support the athletes in this event. We know from experience that friendly and supportive volunteers make a huge difference to the outcome of the event and the enjoyment of the entrants.
In return for volunteering we have a briefing night that includes home-made pizza and drinks, usually on the Tuesday night of event week. Volunteers also get a special medal on the day of the event.
At the inaugural 2011 event (5km and 10km only and just 178 entrants) we required 4 volunteers. That has grown to well over 100 volunteers as the event stands today. Duties range from general marshal points on course, drink station attendants, gate keepers, traffic control personnel, bib number checkers, baggage handlers, registration assistants, medal givers, pacers, sweepers, cyclist leaders and more.
