Volunteers wanted for Les Allcorn 2019 race

Following on from hosting an incredibly successful Harrier League Cross-country event, we are now looking for volunteers for this year’s Les Allcorn 10K and Junior 3k Fun Run,  to be held on Tuesday 14th May 2019.

The races are held in the stunning Hulne Park, in Alnwick, and are in honour of Les, one of our early and very talented club members who is sadly missed.

This year will be the 22nd year since the Les Allcorn started and once again we hope to celebrate it with another successful event.

But this cannot be done without a large number of volunteers – always drawn from our members and their family and friends. We are hoping that you will volunteer, not to worry if you’re new to this, as full instructions will be provided at the marshal briefing on the evening.

All you need to bring is yourself, not forgetting some warm clothing (and possibly a flask) as standing around for approximately two hours on a May evening in Northumberland always gets a bit cool!

Please think of supporting your club and volunteering to ensure that this event goes ahead  and you can still help even if you are planning to run, with either the car parking, or race entry early duties. We still want as many of our own runners as possible of course – it’s great to cheer them on – so please help your club and get involved by racing or volunteering or both if you can.

A sign-up sheet has been put up on the Harriers notice board at Willowburn Sports Centre – please add your name as soon as possible. Or, you can message/email Gareth Breese – via garethbreese@me.com – if you are unable to get to Willowburn or if you would like further information.

Marshals are needed at different times depending on the duties, with some marshals required from approx. 5pm for car parking and race entries; others at a later time as course marshals on the race route, usually all finished by 8.30pm. Please comment if you intend to run.

The full list of volunteers, activity and time of marshal briefing will be placed on the notice board and the website approximately a week prior to the date. We are very dependent on your support for this event.
