OUTrun are recruiting event Marshalls

Want to get involved in this year's Outrun? Organisers are currently recruiting marshalls for the 5-mile, timed running event around Glasgow's Kelvingrove Park and along the Kelvin Walkway taking place on 20th August 2016.

Taking place the same weekend as Glasgow Pride, OUTrun's underlying aim is to raise awareness of LGBT+ participation in sport. The event has been organised by Glasgow FrontRunners, a Commonwealth Legacy 2014 partner and one of Scotland's largest LGBT+ friendly sports clubs with over 140 members.

With the right environment and support sport is great fun whatever your experience or capability, and regular exercise is hugely important for health and wellbeing. Currently there is a lack of visibility of LGBT+ people in sport, and often people from the LGBT+ community feel sport is not for them. Glasgow FrontRunners are proud to be part of an effort to make a worthwhile change in these areas, and we have organised OUTrun to raise awareness of these issues.

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to marshal the course.

Volunteers will be responsible for ensuring the safety of athletes and members of the public, as well as helping to create a fun and friendly atmosphere during the event. No experience is necessary.

We will provide opportunities for volunteers to come and walk around the course in advance of the race (on the 13th and 19th August).
