This weekend will be the third race in a row where I have marshaled or helped, rather than running. I’m really looking forward to it.
First, was the Inveraray Jail Break which was great fun, and very wet. Next was manning a checkpoint and crewing for Julia at the Kintyre Way ultra.
Sunday brings the fantastic Mull of Kintyre half marathon and10K. We are registered for the half, however life got in the way, training was derailed and so we’re marshaling instead.
Volunteering to help has been a huge positive for me. My mojo has returned from its wee trek away, and I have a new found appreciation for race organisers and runners too.
There’s a new campaign launched to highlight the need for volunteers, supporters and marshals, and it’s being supported by Jo Pavey: If you haven’t already, check out joininuk for more information.
If you’re running the MOK on Sunday, look out for me: I’ll have jelly babies, and plenty of vocal support! 😉
