Get Involved

Thanks you for looking at our get involved page. We hope that you can help us make it a great race day.
Without the help of volunteers and sponsors it would not be possible to put on this race.
There is much to do in the organising before race day comes around, but we have a good team involved giving freely of their time.
Below is the list of jobs that are needed on the day. Click Here to see the course map for marshal positions.
If you can help on the day please contact - john@ward-leeds.co.uk
