London Marathon Cheer Point Volunteer

We need London Marathon Cheer Point Volunteers

As cheerer you will have the best seat in the house, with a front row view of all the action.  Your role is to make as much noise as you can to support our runners on their 26.2-mile run!

The louder and brighter the Cheering Team is the more you will encourage and motivate our runners to continue on regardless of the aches and pains they may be experiencing. Also entering into the spirit of the marathon will ensure that you have a fantastic day. 

We’ll provide you with an Action for Children t-shirt, bang bang sticks, clap bangers and pom poms so there’s no doubt you’ll stand out to our runners. As a cheerer, your designated time slot will be some time between 10am-5pm- this is so we have a large and loud presence at any given time!

There are two cheer point location options for you to choose from:

Our first cheer point is at Mile 19, near Canary Wharf station

The second cheer point is at mile 25, near the Victoria Embankment
