Think you could be up to the task of cheering on our walkers for our new event Walkies with Wisdom? Helping marshal them on the route from set points. We also need a helping hand with various general volunteering jobs at the HQ venue, Medway Rugby Club.

Details for the day are listed below but if you have any questions at all please do let us know.

Date:                                  Saturday 30th July 2022

Venue:                               Medway Rugby Club, Priestfields, Rochester, ME1 3AD

Steward Briefing Time:   12.45pm – for signing in and collecting a tabard.

Event Start Time:             2pm

Official Finish Time:         5pm

There will be an official sweeper marshal at the end who will tell you when you can stand down. Please remember to sign back in otherwise we will be looking for you all evening!!!

Parking

There is free parking at Medway Rugby Club. Some marshals will find it easier to drive closer to their positions. We will have a couple of signs you can put in your cars to show you are a race marshal, but please do not park illegally. Please just ask if you’d like a sign.

Attire

The Friends purple tabards (which we will loan you) or t-shirts if you have one. Also whatever else is appropriate to the weather on the day.

Refreshments

Please make sure you bring any water and/or snacks for yourselves whilst you're on your marshal point. There will be a bbq at the event so please bring some money with you for a burger at the end of the day.

Further Information

If you know of anyone else who would like to be a volunteer marshal please make sure you provide us with their full contact details. Including a mobile number and email address and we will happily get in touch.

We will be stationed at different points around the route which The Friends will have allocated to you. Things can change right up until the morning, due to sickness, weather etc. so be prepared to change position.

"Easy choice, can't wait to support my local hospice and meet some furry new friends! and it's a great excuse to get outdoors."
