Volunteers are required to keep the course clear and ensure the event passes safely. Marshals will be situated along the route to direct and encourage runners and will also be on hand at the finish line to give out water and medals.
Nigel Jones, Swansea Council's Special Events Manager and Race Director, said, “Volunteers are the key to a successful Admiral Swansea Bay 10k and there are many ways in which they can get involved.”
“It always proves to be a very entertaining event and is a great occasion for volunteers to be part of.
“Volunteers will need to be available between 9.30am and 3.30pm on the day of the race and will receive a t-shirt, goody bag and a packed lunch in return for their support.”
Anyone interested in helping at this year's event can download a Marshall Request Form from http://www.swanseabay10k.com or call Special Events on 01792 635428.
