Thanks for expressing an interesting in Marshalling!

You’ve made a good choice!

Marshals help us ensure the smooth running of the events.

You’ll have a lot of fun, meet the crew, see a little of behind the scenes and it’s very simple to do. Just guiding our runners through the obstacles and around the route, ensuring they are safe, calling in the troops if there’s a problem, e.g. our maintenance crew and/or medics, and of course providing encouragement and support all along the way!

We do ask everyone to arrive early, between 7am and 7:15am – but we know it’s early and we’ll have coffee and tea on tap to get you going!  The last runners are usually through by 4pm, although sometimes they can be a little longer.

As a member of our Marshal team, you will receive the following items as thanks helping us run this truly epic event!;

  • Free entry to any future race
  • Free Rough Runner crew t-shirt
  • Free lunch from any of the caterers on site
  • Free tea & coffee from the registration tent

If you’re feeling generous, you can choose to give your ticket to someone else, and let them race the event whilst you’re marshalling. Don’t worry, you still get the T-shirt and other free stuff!

Given that we have a Saturday and a Sunday event at each location, you can marshal on one day and run on the other, but you can’t run and marshal on the same day. We have tried it before which is why we know not to offer this any more!

If you sign up with a friend we do our best (though can’t 100% guarantee it) to station you on the same obstacle to make it even more fun!
