We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to guide our running crew from the finish line to their well-deserved post-race reception at Central Hall Westminster. After 26.2 gruelling miles, they deserve it. Plus, you’ll get to meet and chat to some incredible people, all with amazing stories about why they’re running for the RNLI. No prior knowledge or experience of the RNLI is needed - you could be friends or family of one of the runners, an RNLI supporter or just want to join us for the experience.


You will be positioned either at Central Hall Westminster, at the Marathon Runners meeting point on Horse Guards Road or along the route between them.


Approximately 12pm–6.30pm on 2 October 2022
