As you know, the success of any race is heavily dependent upon having a team of enthusiastic volunteers. At this point in time, with just under 60 days to go, I’m still looking for a few more helpers. As such, if anyone is able to spare some time on that date, please do let me know.
Full details for the race and volunteering details can be found through the following link:
There are a variety of roles available, ranging from driving a people carrier / minivan, helping at a checkpoint, to marking the route or sweeping, depending on how active you’d like to make your day out.
Many of the checkpoints and the finish line are all adjacent to country pubs, so it’s a great way to see some of the Suffolk / Essex countryside. The route passes through many beautiful villages, in addition to the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where the famous artist John Constable painted many of his best known landscapes.
Also, as we are holding the race on a Saturday, there are good train and bus services running.
Many thanks in advance and I hope some of you can join me in the countryside on the 16th August. It should be a great day, whether you are running or helping out!
I'll be landing Friday evening (I think around 9pm). I'll probably have to register first thing on Saturday morning, so may end up missing the breakfast (depending on what time you are going). If you have any idea what time you might be there, I'll try and organise registration around that.
Definitely up for evening drinks at the Hilton though.
