We always have opportunities for you to get involved at the Lakeland Trails events as a volunteer – it’s a really rewarding experience and how many of our crew first got involved in the events.
We have positions available for all sorts of often straightforward, yet important roles, from marshalling and stewarding duties to helping at water stations and giving out T-shirts.
In return for your support, you’ll receive a range of benefits (details below). All we ask is that you make yourself available to attend a briefing at 9am and then help either until 1pm, or from 12pm onwards (many people enjoy it so much that they help out all day). If you can’t help for that long, we’d still love to have your support, but you might need to help out twice for a free entry.
So, whether you're injured, having a break, coming along with another competitor, or just fancy helping out and having some fun with our friendly team we'd love to hear from you. Drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be in touch shortly! You can also sign up for our Volunteers' newsletter to stay informed of opportunities to help out.
