Above: There is a volunteer role for everyone, join other Race Makers at the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon and 10k
The coastline at Cleethorpes is welcoming back to its shore the ABP Coastal Half Marathon and 10k on the 17th of September. Runners from across the country have registered for event, including those with high hopes of qualifying for England Athletics Age Group Masters Half Marathon competition.
Supporting everyone taking part in the race will be event organisers Tape2Tape’s crew of volunteer Race Makers. Race Makers have several roles which ensure the event runs smoothly whilst also creating that special magic on the day to encourage everyone over the finishing line.
There is a role for everyone, and tasks include handing out water, t-shirts, medals and cake, or marshalling the running route (preferably 17 yrs and above) children can also come along with an adult on the day to marshal.
There are nine zones along the race so if you are part of a community group, charity or local business then why not volunteer as a team! Each zone provides support for runners with refreshments, cake and cheering to help the runners on their journey to the spectacular finishing line on Cleethorpes promenade.
If you are a keen photographer Tape2Tape would love you to join the event as a volunteer photographer. All the pictures taken on the day are made freely available to runners.
Tape2Tape Managing Director, Nicola Pattison said:
“If you would like to volunteer at the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon and 10k then email or [email protected].
If you fancy taking part in this picture perfect running challenge, there is still time to register for either the Half Marathon or 10k. All runners will receive a bespoke race medal that this year features a striking oystercatcher on a pebble shape to pay homage to the natural landscape that makes this coastal route stand out from the rest.”
