Can I participate on the same day that I volunteer?

At the majority of our events, the morning volunteer shifts end after the final start wave has already been released. Therefore, we cannot guarantee volunteering and running on the same day.

However, if you discover that the start wave times extend at least 30 minutes past your shift end time, you'll likely be able to run. You can find out the start waves times in the volunteer information pack which is sent out 10 days prior to the event. (Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee start wave times any earlier than that as the team don't allocated start waves any earlier)

Other options to volunteer, and run:
Volunteer on a Saturday. You can use your volunteer discount on the Sunday or at a future event*
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Volunteer on a Sunday. You can use your volunteer discount at a future event, or obtain a reimbursement for your Saturday ticket.
Volunteer as a Pre-Event Volunteer (limited space) in the week leading up to the event and this will allow you to run that weekend, or at a future event
 *Future Event = Your discount code will be valid for the year you volunteered in or the one year proceeding
