You don’t need to run to be part of race day! 

Volunteers are essential in making sure that race day is a huge success and you will be part of a large team of amazing volunteers called ‘The Extra-Milers’ that will help ensure that runners and spectators alike have a great experience. 

You don’t need any special skills, just be reliable, flexible and have lots of enthusiasm! There are a whole range of different roles available on race day and will be something to suit everyone. Every volunteer team is looked after by an experienced Run 4 Wales supervisor, with our Volunteer Coordinator supporting.  All volunteers receive an exclusive Extra Milers volunteering t-shirt and bag, along with on-the-day refreshments to keep you energised during the event. 

As well as individuals, friends and family, we also welcome groups of volunteers. We have previously been supported at our events by the police cadets, scouts, refugee groups, sixth-form colleges and social running groups, to name just a few. If you are part of a local community or youth group that might be interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from you. Please email our Volunteer Coordinator volunteers@run4wales.org for more information if you would like to sign up as a group.   

Please note that the minimum age for volunteering is 14. We ask that 14-17 year olds have a completed parental consent form and be accompanied during their volunteering by someone over the age of 18 (as agreed by a parent/guardian).

Roles Available 

Water Station  

Help to keep the runners hydrated by volunteering at the midway water station. This is located at the Hi Tide Inn at the 5km mark. We need volunteers here from 9.30am until around 11.30am.  

Bag Drop Area 

A great chance to chat to the runners before and after the race by working in the Bag Drop Area, where runners can safely stow a bag during the race. This is located inside the Grand Pavilion, right next to the start and finish line. We need volunteers here from 8.30am until around 12.00pm.  

Start and Finish Line 

Help direct runners to the correct starting area, then congratulate them after the race and hand out medals, t-shirts and water. The start and finish line is on the Esplanade. We need volunteers here from 9.30am until around 12.00pm.  

Course Marshals 

Support and direct runners and spectators as they navigate the junctions, hazards and speed bumps around the course. This is best suited to those with marshalling experience, although this is not essential. We need volunteers from 9.30am until around 12pm, depending on the location assigned.  

Volunteering is a great way to have fun, make friends, enhance your CV and experience the electric atmosphere of race day. So if you want a great day out, a front-row seat to a great event or have friends or family member running who you want to support, then why not volunteer?!
