Event Volunteers - Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Edinburgh Marathon Festival   

Sat 25th May at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh

Sun 26th May at Pinkie Primary School, Musselburgh and Portobello cheer point

Contact: [email protected]      Tel: 0131 551 9355 


Come join us at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival; voted the fastest Marathon in the UK, to cheer on our fantastic runners and be part of Team Alzscot! The event has sold out every year since 2008 and is known to be a great weekend with a brilliant atmosphere and buzz for not only participants but volunteers.

 We are looking for a minimum of 30 cheerful, friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to attend for a few hours, whatever your availability.

Our main aim during these events is to encourage and cheer on our runners who raise vital funds for Alzheimer Scotland. You will assist in encouraging our runners throughout the route and helping set up our cheer point and marquee at the finish line. Within the marquee you will help with bucket collections, thanking our runners and serving tea and coffee.

No experience is required as our events team will brief you before the start of the races.
