Opportunity: Diabetes UK Fundraising Events Volunteer - London Landmarks Half Marathon

We need your help! Come and join Diabetes UK for our first London-based event of the year: the quirky, vibrant and exciting London Landmarks Half Marathon. This year, we’ve got 229 runners supporting the charity, and we need your loudest voices and biggest smiles to cheer them to the finishing line.

When? Sunday, 29 March between 10:00 and 14:00

Where? There are two options:

- Mile 5.5 (Chancery Lane/Carew Street) Situated right outside the Knights Templar pub, we’ll have a brass band grooving away to keep those runners moving.
- Mile 11 (Upper Thames Street) – With two miles left, this is where the runners really need us to shout their name, wave our bang sticks and to motivate them over the final hurdle

You’ll be provided with a Diabetes UK T-shirt, bang bang sticks, crazy hair and refreshments.

And to celebrate all the pioneering research that Diabetes UK support, we’ll be dressing up at our Mile 11 cheer point as scientists. Think lab coats, stethoscopes, crazy hair and glasses! Borrow some fancy dress items, bring your own or just morally support those who dress up in costume.

Bring a friend, make a day of it and enjoy one of London’s greatest running events up close and personal!
