Standard Chartered Great City Race - Thursday 12th July

For the first time in a few years the BA Fun Run and 5km Standard Chartered Great City Race are not being held on the same day, so there's no excuse for not helping at both! You'll have seen Roderick's e-mail for help at the BA fun run, this e-mail is for the Standard Chartered Great City Race on Thursday 12th July. We'll be helping to support the course senior stewards in marshalling the course and general assistance with the spectators and general public who need to cross the course. This will be the 8th year of assisting with this race so I think we're fairly familiar with what's required. Last year we managed to get 25 marshals and I'll need similar numbers again this year. In terms of timings, the start is 19:15, and we'd need to be on site by 18:00, finishing by 20:00. In return you'd get a t-shirt, expenses up to the cost of a travel card, that all important club donation and some post race refreshments at the Honourable Artillery ground in the middle of the square mile.

If you'd like to help, drop me an e-mail with a contact phone number (ideally a mobile) and preferred T-shirt size. Nearer the time I'll circulate final details.

Regards, Simon Turton

PS. Thank you to Jagjit Singh who's already volunteered.
