Cheer Station

What impact will this have?

  • Motivate and support our RNLI running crew during one of the toughest challenges they are to ever accomplish!
  • Help our RNLI running crew to cross the finish line, to raise vital funds to save lives at sea.
  • ‘Without the cheer stands a lot of people would not finish, as the saying is so true ‘the crowd carry you’! I cannot thank the cheer stations enough, just a simple high five or shouting my name makes so much difference to the mental state of a runner “yes I can do this, now let’s get to that finish line”.’

Commitment

  • Can you whoop, cheer, whistle and shout?!

    If so, we need YOU!

    We are looking for some enthusiastic volunteers to help our amazing RNLI Runners on one of the biggest days of their lives – participating in the Virgin Money London Marathon!
  • Taking place on Sunday 26 April 2020, we have two types of volunteer role; so whether you want to cheer on runners at one of the two cheering stations, or assist them at the post-race reception, we would love your help!

What else do I need to know?

  • No prior knowledge or experience of the RNLI is needed - you could be friends or family of one of the runners, an RNLI supporter or just want to join us for the experience.

    This is an opportunity to include volunteer experience on your CV, meet new people and support the RNLI Running Crew – all while enjoying one of the UK’s best loved sporting events from a prime position.
  • If you are under 18 years of age you will need to complete a consent form before you arrive on the day - this will be provided to you on confirmation of your role
