If you are not running in the LM this October, why not spend a couple of hours volunteering instead?
Every year, RPAC organises volunteers to direct the competitors and their families/friends around the start areas. It's an early morning meeting on Blackheath (about 6am), but once all the race start areas are empty of runners (takes about 45 minutes from the start of the race), then you are free to spectate yourself - or go back to bed!! It's great fun, and we have many volunteers who come back time and time again. We usually are given a t-shirt; have to wear a bib, and will always need to have our passes on display - but everyone really appreciates your help and the atmosphere is quite electric!!
Because we had volunteers from 2020 who obviously didn't get to help, they were offered places for 2021 first, and we are now left with just ONE volunteer spot. Are you free?
DEADLINE TO RESPOND: Sunday 25 July 2021
If you would like to know more or can offer your help, please email Donna on
I am very happy to keep a waitlist after this place is filled (up to 5), and those will get first chance to help in April 2022.
