Marshalls and cheer leaders

Only got a couple of hours to spare?Guide Dogs cheerers on a bus at the London Marathon
Like to give people a boost?

If this sounds like you and you’ve got lots of enthusiasm or a loud cheering voice, then come and join us!

We are at many of the UKs big running events, like the Virgin London Marathon, the Bupa Great North Run and the Brighton Marathon.

We need your support along the running routes to cheer on our runners and shout words of encouragement.  Our runners do a fantastic thing for us in training very hard to raise money for Guide Dogs.

Helping out at our events is a really exciting and sociable way to get involved. We’ve even witnessed a marriage proposal on the running route before! As well as cheering, you could get involved in directing runners into our area and chatting to runners at our charity village stand.

You could even be one of our runners.

Come and join Team Guide Dogs and show us how loud you can be!

To sign up or for more information, please get in touch with our events team at or call us on 0345 1430200.

Calls to our Events Team will cost 5 pence per minute plus your telephone company’s access charge.

We look forward to seeing you there.
