Volunteer info

Putting on even a fairly small marathon such as the Tunnel requires a lot of work on race day, much of which is done by volunteers. Registered volunteers who help out with the race will receive a reserved place in our other marathon. This is not a free entry into the race, but rather the right to sign up even if the race is full, up until six weeks before the race date.
