Event Information


We need help throughout the event, from sweeping the undercliff path to make it free from debris and safe for running, to helping at the start/finish line, handing out medals and goodies, removing chips from trainers and clearing the event away at the end of the day. Volunteers will have the opportunity to tell us their time availability and physical ability before the event to help us cover all necessary positions.

If you have any questions about volunteering at the 8K, please contact us directly at [email protected] - we appreciate any time and help you can spare and couldn't run our events without you!

*please note - under-13s cannot volunteer at the 8K, and under-18s must have parental consent*
