Marathon Makers

We love our volunteer army here at the Hull Marathon. Without them the event just wouldn’t happen and we want to say a huge thank you to all of our previous volunteers. Over 500 help bring the event to life.

Here are just a couple of the amazing things people have said about volunteering with the Hull Marathon:

"Can’t wait to be part of it next year." Emily

"‘I wasn’t expecting the shift to be anything out of the ordinary, but how wrong can you be?
It turned out to be one of the best things I have ever done." Chris - City of Culture volunteer.

Are you part of a running club?

If you’re part of a running club, why not volunteer as a group?
We can offer running groups their own zone to marshal which is a great opportunity to promote your club. It will also make sure you have a great view so that you can cheer on your teammates!
