Event Volunteering 14+ Years

LimeLight Sports invites schools, colleges and youth organisations to bring groups of 14 year olds and older to volunteer at the:

Oxford Half Marathon Sat 15th October 2023

LimeLight volunteers get to see behind the scenes and provide incredible energy, enthusiasm and support to participants and supporters. It's a great way to see a mass participation sporting event seeing how the event is run, use current skills and learn new ones as well as having fun.

No previous experience is required, the average shift time is six hours and there's food and refreshments. Donations can be made to groups to say thank you (great for fundraising or to fund a particular project) and help with travel expenses.
