Without our fantastic volunteers, the Oxford Town and Gown 10k would not be able to happen. Volunteers helping out on the day are not only vital to the success of the event, they make a huge difference to the overall experience of our hundreds of runners. Why not join us and them for the 2017 event?

What is required?

We need to recruit 100 volunteers to perform a variety of tasks during the day including:

  • Water station marshal
  • Baggage tent coordinator
  • Goody bag distributor
  • Information tent administrator
  • Start and finish line marshals
  • Route marshal

Check out our full volunteer role descriptions for more information on the roles.

What is the time commitment?
  • Volunteers will be sent a detailed pre-event briefing which will provide details of their role and key timings.
  • Volunteers will need to arrive at the event by 8am to attend a pre-race briefing before taking up their stations.
  • We anticipate that the event will be over by 13:00, although many of the volunteer roles will finish when the race is over at 12.00.

All volunteers will be provided with refreshments at the start of the day.
