“It was a pleasure – really enjoyed it. Feedback for the runners – almost 100% said thanks and/or smiled/waived – so a really lovely atmosphere.”
John, Childerley Estate 2018
“Just wanted to say, thanks for making Chris and I feel part of the marshalling team. We really enjoyed it, and hope to be able to marshal again at one of your races next year”.
Collette, Wimpole 2018
“I loved it, it was my first time marshalling one of your races and had a blast”.
Helen, Hatfield Forest 2018
“Well done for all your hard work and fantastic organisation yesterday. Wimpole was looking amazing and I really enjoyed being able to help as a Marshal and encouraging all the runners.”
Jo, Wimpole 2018
“Just to say John and I loved helping out on Sunday, so many different comments from finishes, from “that was hell” to “oh my god, I love that”
Wendy, Wimpole 2018
“ I really enjoyed marshalling the Wimpole 10k hoohaah last year– I was made to feel part of a fabulous team on the day and was surprised how many runners thanked me as they ran past. Thank you hoohaah. I felt very appreciated and I will be back!”

For every running event that hoohaah organizes we need a team of volunteer marshals to act as our eyes and ears on the course. It is the number one responsibility of all course marshals to encourage our runners and cheer them on! Throughout our 10 years of race organization runners have never failed to heap praise on our volunteer marshals – they are a tremendous team many of whom return year on year to help us support the charity we are fundraising for.
In 2019 we would like to reward our volunteer marshals as we reward our runners so we are offering a ‘hoohaah Crew’ hoody to anyone who can marshal at three or more of our events. We are sorry but we to qualify you would need to do 3 runs or 3 marshals sessions. We cannot offer hoodies for a combination of running and marshalling.
Free Race Place
We are also offering free race entry to any hoohaah event as follows:
Marshal for a 10k race = free entry to a different hoohaah 10k
Marshal for a 10mile or half marathon race = free entry to a race of the same distance or free entry to a hoohaah 10k event.
These offers are not transferable to another individual.
If you have some time to give and enjoy spending it outdoors do please contact us using the contacts form.
No previous experience is required! All volunteers are given full instructions and will receive a tea/coffee voucher to be redeemed at the café of the venue plus a homemade cake or bar.
