Volunteer to be part of the Night of the 10,000 Metres 2017 IAAF World Championship qualifier trials event on Saturday 20th May 2017.
The event this year will be the Great Britain trials for the World Championships which take place in London’s Olympic Stadium in July 2017, so there is a cracking London 2012 volunteer legacy story line. In addition, Marathon World Record holder Paula Radcliffe will be the VIP seminar speaker, with 5-time snooker World Champ Ronnie O’Sullivan asking her the questions – so it should attract quite an audience.
Here is a short film montage of the 2016 event to hopefully entice you to volunteer –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDrN0y1wglg
If you’re good with people and thrive in an energetic but busy atmosphere, this might be the opportunity for you! They are looking for stewards to help support the event and add to the excitement.
The kind of support needed on the day will be:
• Meeting and greeting members of the public and participants.
• Marshalling the running track
• Signposting members of the public. E.g. to the registration desk, toilets, etc.
• Supporting staff with crowd control duties
• Assisting with setting up and packing away equipment and any leftover rubbish.
• Handing out leaflets
The deadline for applications is ——– Friday 12th May.
