We Need You! to be a Marshal

On 4th June 2016, Beccles is staging its 5th annual Triathlon.

Like previous events, we expect it to be a fun day with an important purpose, as all money raised will be donated to Beccles Lido;

and like the Lido, we want it to be a Community event, and to get as many people involved as possible.  So even if you haven’t entered the race, why not participate as a Marshal?

We need lots of generous volunteers to help ensure the event runs smoothly and is safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Don’t worry if you haven’t done anything like it before, we’ll tell you everything you need to know, you just need to be:

Reliable
If you say you can do it, we will count on you.

Enthusiastic
Triathletes like people smiling at them as they sweat.

Able to give clear signals
Point everyone in the right direction or marshal traffic points.

Available
You will need to attend the pre-race meeting a week before the event to find out what to expect and what will be required of you on the day.

Willing to start early on the day
Depending on where you are marshaling on the course, the race starts at 8:30 so we will need you early on the morning of the event and to marshal for around 3 hours on the day.

At least 18
Sorry, health and safety stipulate this! But if you are underage, you’re welcome to come along and cheer on the day.

In return, you will have the chance to help raise funds for a great cause, be a part of a great event in the Beccles calendar, and rouse some community spirit!  We’ll keep you topped up with drinks  and you are very welcome to stay afterwards for a swim on us!
