Marshaling duties will be on the Saturday for each race from 08h30 to 13h30.  We understand that those who volunteer to marshal also have children participating. We have introduced a new system where we will divide the marshals into shifts of 2 hours each to accommodate this situation. We encourage you to please volunteer for both the services of registration and marshaling to make these events possible.

Set-up duties will mainly be the Friday before the race – assistance is needed to assemble the start and finish areas, sponsorship branding and final track demarcation. The process will begin at 09h00 on the Friday morning however, should you wish to volunteer you are welcome to arrive at any point during the day.
