APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2014 EVENT WILL OPEN JANUARY 2014
We will need a number of volunteer marshals to help with the event.
Volunteering as a race marshal is great fun and we are confident that marshals will have some memorable experiences, make some new friends and share many laughs. However, it can be hard work and you should expect some long hours. For example, our earliest starts will be 0700 each day and we can expect our slowest competitors to finish as late as 2000. During this time we will need to provide food to competitors as they finish, man the start, finish and any checkpoints. Each day we will also need to dismantle, pack, move and reassemble the entire overnight event centre, which includes various tents and equipment. We also have checkpoints to place and collect in, working a day ahead and behind the competitors. We'll be busy!
Marshals will be camping with the competitors at the overnight camp and will need to provide all their own camping and sleeping kit.
We are particularly interested in marshals that have any medical training and previous event experience and / or are sufficiently competent mountain runners/walker that they can place or collect checkpoints.
Our preference will be for experienced volunteers who are able to attend the event from the evening of Friday 3rd through to late afternoon on Monday 6th May. However, we are very happy to consider all offers of help.
What is provided for marshals:
1) Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th and breakfast and packed lunch on Monday 6th May.
2) Parking for the weekend
3) Transport* to each overnight event centre or other work location.
4) Reasonable, cost of travel expenses, and if required to use your own vehicle during the week, expenses for this as well.
5) Free entry to the next Great Lakeland 3Day™ or Marmot Dark Mountains™ in 2014.
*Transport: We will have some transport available for moving people around but will require some marshals to use their own vehicles.
