Help make Race for Life 2014 happen

We need inspiring and motivational volunteers to make a difference at Race for Life events this year.

Volunteers play a vital role at all our Race for Life 5k, 10k and Pretty Muddy events across the country, carrying out a variety of roles. Take a look at the volunteering profiles below to find out how you can get involved.

Race for Life events are the biggest success when we have a collective force of volunteers helping out on the day and we need every one of you.

Without you our events simply cannot happen. We know that sometimes things pop up in life, so if you are unfortunately unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible.
