Massive Thank you to the following individuals for the time they spent helping to marshal the Manchester half Marathon last Sunday.
It was a wet cold start to the day, but I think everyone can agree it is very satisfying to cheer on thousands and thousand of runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and backgrounds.
On top of all the adult volunteers it was great to see the swimmers out and about helping during the day (including a few trips to McDonalds).
Marshalling the Manchester Marathon (Spring) and Manchester Half is one of our key fundraisers every year. Whilst most of the volunteers are repeat attendees it is great to see new parents stepping up to lend a hand.
Please keep your eyes out for the next time we need volunteers (and please don’t avoid Penny at marathon time in fear of being asked to volunteer)
Thank you to Penny for all the time it takes to communicate and coordinate the marshals.
