Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Hello to ALL NHRR squirrels 🐿

The Standalone 10k is only 4 weeks away! We have a full race with 1760 runners, it’s going to be big and amazing.
I need as many of you as possible to help, we’ll be needing we’ll over 100 volunteers to enable a safe and well managed event. We need marshals on the course and helpers at the farm.
PLEASE can you find some time to sign up on this thread if you are able to help on SUNDAY 6th OCTOBER, also do mention any particular job or marshal position you’d like to do and I will make sure the day works for you.
I will continually be checking this thread up until race day now so please post post post....
Also please feel free to ask me anything, I am always at training on a Tuesday night.

Many thanks

Paula (A)

Awaiting orders sir! 😉

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

I’m v happy to help too! Ideally at or near standalone itself if poss, but don’t mind what job!

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Hi Paula - would love to do Tshirts again, and could also do number collection early on Sunday or an early marshal point as required - whatever is most useful. Will also stay to help with the clear up, of course :smile:

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Both James Keogh and me (Clare Hooley) are available but we prefer to be located near each other as I don’t drive - our usual spots near the Three Horseshoes/St Nicolas church??

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Glad to help as a volunteer.

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

I can help - was on the bypass last year, happy to do that again

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Happy to volunteer, whatever you need me for !

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Just confirming that Karen is looking forward to working with Jo on the farm whilst Pete is start manager:)

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

I could rail run if you need one or help out

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Happy to help marshal out on the course. Was at the by-pass last year.

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Happy to marshall and cheer anywhere on the course or help out at the water station. And I can help set up the day before.

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Happy to volunteer. I have been on water at the race finish last couple years and happy to do it again. Also setting up, registration, or anything else that needs going at the farm. Can start early.

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Hi, I should be free to help... either marshal or giving out bib numbers the day before?

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

I would like to do registration and then T shirts please.
Sharon Gregson would like a marshal position near the start.

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

I would like to do water station half way round but can do something else if needed. Prefer not to do early set up.

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

I can do The Birches again. This works for me as I will have the kids and there isn't much traffic control and is over quite quickly.

We are both happy to Marshall. First time for Viv so happy with anything.

Worked really well so happy to do the same again or wherever you need me.

Re: Standalone - please volunteer to help here

Dear Chief Marshall Paula
Thank you for your message. Please count me in to help. I should be very grateful if I could be based somewhere near the farm so I can check in with my children who will be there. I think last year I was Marshall by the entrance to the farm just before the finish. Happy to do that again if that is convenient.
Thanks
Randeep
