Marshall and Cheerleader at Challenge Events

Only got a couple of hours to spare?

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 UK's 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. The minimum age for this role is 16 years old.

You could even be one of our runners.

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

We look forward to seeing you there.
