The St Albans Striders membership year runs from April to March each year, concurrent with the England Athletics membership year.
The cost for club membership for the full year or any part of it is £27. If you have volunteered at a Striders event between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019 then you are eligible for volunteer membership at the discounted rate of £17.
Volunteers are needed throughout the day to help with the pre-race organisation, for marshalling, helping with the food and clearing up afterwards.
The race runs from 9:00am through to 9:00pm and help will be needed from 7:00am through to about 10:00pm. The list of roles includes;
Marshals – all day
Runners food table – all day
Kitchen assistance – all day
HQ setup 7:00 to 9:00
Car park 7:00 to 9:00
HQ number collection 7:00 to 8:30

We don’t expect anyone to be there all day, although if that’s what you want to do then great. For the Marshals and all-day jobs, we are going to use four shifts of 3 hours each again this year. If you want to do a morning shift and then come back later in the day then that will also be very welcome. Do not forget this is a fun day, so family and friends are very welcome to help as well.
The shifts will be;
Shift one 08:30 to 12:00
Shift two 11:30 to 15:00
Shift three 14:30 to 18:00
Shift four 17:30 to 21:00
