“The event volunteers are vital to the success of the event – simply it cannot run without them!

“The volunteer roles are vital and you will make an enormous difference to the participant’s and spectator’s event experience.

“Volunteering is a great way to have fun, make friends and gain experience.

“Volunteering at the event can also give you the opportunity to test out potential career choices.

“Equally, if you know of others who can join you then please ask them to get in touch.

“We have a variety of roles available from directing participants, helping at the start/finish, providing information for spectators to handing out the all-important medals! In return for your support, food and refreshments will be provided.

“Planning for the event is well under way, and it would be great to know that you want to come and help us at the event.

“Volunteers will be required from approximately 9.30am to 3.30pm but timings will be confirmed nearer the event.

“After the Olympic and Commonwealth Games successes of London 2012 and Glasgow 2014, there has never been a better time to get involved with sport in general and triathlon specifically.”
