Bridges of the Tyne 5M RR: Volunteers required

Tyne Bridge Harriers annual 5 Mile Road Race takes place on Tuesday, 8th July.

Looking at the current start list, almost 90 TBH members are down to run, which by my reckoning leaves another 100+ members with nothing to do that evening (can you see where I’m going with this? ;-) ).

To ensure the race is as successful as previous years, the club once again need as many volunteers/helper’s as possible for the evening.

Although the race doesn’t get under way until 7:15pm, some volunteers, particularly those manning the registration desk, will need to be available from 5:30pm.

The remaining volunteers can start arriving at Race HQ (the Tyne Bar pub) between 6:00-6:15pm.

Besides from the small army of marshals required on the course, we also need volunteers for a few specific tasks, such as Lead BikeTail Runner and Funnel Manager.

If you’re able to help out, you can contact me either by EMAIL or at one of the club sessions.

Many thanks,

    I’ll volunteer- if I can get away to watch the race! Is registration the best place for this to happen?

    1. no worries Si, you’ll still be able to watch the race.

    Hello, member of a different running club (Sunderland Strollers) and the reserve list probably too long to get a place, I can volunteer. I promise not to send any Sunderland Harriers the wrong way. And no not coming from Sunderland, I am just up the road in Byker.

    1. Hi Sue, thanks for offering to help out for the event, it’s most appreciated.
      I’ll add your name to the volunteers list and get back to you nearer the time with your marshalling point.
