Free race entry for vital volunteers
VOLUNTEERS are being urged to step forward to play a part in Northamptonshire Sport’s 2016 Northants 5k Race Series.
Now in its fifth year, the series has become embedded in the county’s annual running calendar.
The 2016 series will include four races across four very different venues, on different terrains.
• Sunday April 17 – Corby at 10.30am
• Sunday May 22 – Irchester Country Park at 10.30am
• Friday June 3 – Wellingborough at 7.30pm
• Friday June 24 – Salcey Forest at 7.30pm
All four courses are 5km and are suitable for people of all running abilities aged 11 years and above on race day (11 and 12-year-olds must be accompanied by an adult entrant).
A spokesman for the organisers said: “Volunteers play a vital role in community sport across Northamptonshire and without the time, energy and commitment of these amazing people many events like this would not be able to run.
“Northamptonshire Sport are pleased to offer a free race entry for a friend/family member to be used within the 5k series. If you would like to take up this offer, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 01604 366122 with the names of the volunteer and free race entrant.”
All volunteers will be required for no more than three hours on the day and will be briefed by the event co-ordinator one hour before the start time of each event. Volunteers will carry out one or two of the following duties – event set up, marshalling around the course, registration and handing out medals and water to finishers.
