Become a Volunteer

We're looking for volunteers to join the UTS Event Team and play a crucial role in delivering this amazing event! Read on to find out how to get involved.

Why volunteer with us?

Volunteering with the Event Team is the perfect way to support the event and help our runners who travel from around the world to take on UTS.

Volunteering also gives a unique insight into the organisation and logistics of an international event of this scale and see first-hand what the runners experience. Who knows, it may inspire you to join the start line the following year!

Whether you can join us for one day, two days, all three days or more, your contribution will be appreciated! You can indicate your availability and see what roles we have available within the application form.

You'll be grouped with other people keen to provide an incredible experience for our runners. At every edition of UTS, we see lasting friendships forged between volunteers. Rest assured: you’ll meet your own tribe here!

Are you keen? If so, check out the fantastic opportunities we have available below and get signed up today! You'll need to create an account on our volunteer portal (Qoezion). Once you've created your account - you can apply to join the Event Team!


We’re looking for over 200 volunteers who are keen to provide a memorable experience to our runners. Our volunteers travel from across the UK and overseas, and are passionate about working with other people.

We have a variety of roles available. To give you a flavour, here are a few of the tasks we need your help with during the event:

  • Welcoming runners to the venue and getting them registered and ready to start.

  • Managing Aid Stations on the courses, serving food, drink and encouragement.

  • Congratulating runners at the finish line, presenting medals and giving high-fives!

  • Managing and distributing runner bags post-race.

  • Greeting and directing spectators and answering any queries.

  • Branding the venue to ensure it looks perfect before the race starts.

  • Marshalling car parks and crossing points, and motivating participants as they pass.

  • Driving our event vehicles, including returning 'DNF' runners back to the finish.

  • Marking the course and helping 'sweep' the trails afterwards.

  • Administering first aid and basic medical assistance to runners in need.
