About the event 

Created by its participants and members of the local community, the Train Station Rivals Run is a one-day celebration centred around the 5km distance run. They aim to bring a diverse representation of the community to work together by either completing the run or by taking part in the various activities and challenges on offer on the day. Participating in these events will help you gain points for your team in the hope of becoming the Rivals Run 2018 champions!

How you can volunteer and make the day a success

  • The day celebration can not run without a dedicated group of volunteers
  • They are looking for 10 Activity Leader volunteers to help make their ideas a reality, with the hope of inspiring our community to take their health and fitness journey’s more seriously.
  • As an Activities Leader, you will be responsible for encouraging the community members to take part in the activities and challenge themselves in a friendly but competitive environment. 
  • You will also need to keep accurate scores, times etc. so that they can announce the winning team at the end of the event.

Who are they looking for?

Someone who is:
  • confident engaging with new people of all ages
  • confident in delivering instructions/rules to community members
  • friendly and welcoming with good listening skills
  • confident with basic administrative and organisational tasks

What the volunteer would gain from the volunteering opportunity:

  • meeting and working with a new, growing organisation looking to make a lasting impact on the community
  • have fun
  • helping make a tangible difference in the community
  • experience delivering in a ‘festival’ setting
  • potential for more voluntary opportunities in the future
