Every event that Kent AC participates in needs a team of marshals and volunteers to help things run smoothly, and club events only happen if people get involved.
For example, The Southern Athletics League track & field events take place across the summer and each meeting needs marshals. People to hand out race numbers and start times, set up races etc and once the races are over the results have to be calculated and prizes awarded. So even the smallest race needs a considerable number of helpers.
Lots of types of events need volunteers, it’s not just races. And it’s not always about doing things on the day – a little help with tasks before and after really helps to ease the burden on those who are doing most of the work.
There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in 2019, so please keep an eye out for notifications. And if there’s something you’d like to make happen then just say so. Send any ideas to the relevant committee member, coach or club official.
