Volunteering at the Standard Chartered Great City Race

We’re always thankful for the amazing volunteers who give their time and enthusiasm to the Standard Chartered Great City Race – we simply couldn’t hold the event without them! Read on to find out how you can join them and do your bit to help. 

Why volunteer? 

Volunteering gives you the chance to experience the buzz of mass participation events first-hand, all as part of a wonderful team. It’s a great way to give something back to the community while enjoying yourself at the same time!   As a volunteer, we’ll offer you full training, support and advice, and provide you with official New Balance kit, equipment, refreshments and more, depending on your role.
