London Marathon

Sunday 21 April 2024

What volunteering roles are available? 

Cheering station volunteers 

We need as many people as we can get to join our cheering stations along the race to cheer as loudly as they can to encourage our incredible runners as they go past. Seeing someone from the charity you’re supporting means so much to a runner and can give them that extra motivation and push they need to keep going! 

Meet and greet 

We’re looking for a friendly volunteer to greet our runners as they arrive at the post-race reception hotel. 

Beanie mascot 

We need someone over 5’7 who is happy to wear our Beanie mascot! You’ll meet our runners as they arrive at the hotel and have some pictures taken. We will ensure you have a chaperone so you're safe and also have a time limit so you don’t overheat.


A volunteer is needed in the hotel to sign in our runners as they arrive back for refreshments and a massage.

Massage queue  

We need someone to manage the queue of people waiting for a massage. Taking names down and making sure the next runner is ready once the previous person is almost finished
