I make no apology for re-posting this appeal.

Many, many thanks to those of you who have already let me know, especially those who said “Yes!”

Scroll down for the full earlier posting, but it is now only 7 weeks until the most important day in the East Cornwall Harriers calendar – the Cornish Marathon.

I am therefore once asking that all members and friends of the club tries their very best to help out on – Sunday 5th November.

As I said, hugely important in making it a great day are the marshals, both out on the course and to help with car parking etc.

We still need at least another 25 Marshals to effectively and safely manage the runners on the day.

It’s not a chore, it’s a fun and enjoyable way to spend a few hours. The reward will be the thanks from the runners and your club, not to mention a pasty and a cup of tea!

There are more than 30 locations where marshals are needed, with many of them needing a few people to work as a team. Why not get a group of friends to do this and have a fun day together. You can either do an early stint or a later one depending where on the course you are, or you can do both !!

The race will start at 10:00am, and the last runners will finish about 6 hours later at 4:00pm. Obviously the timing of your attendance depends on your location. Full instructions will be given for every marshal position.

Please let me know as soon as you can that you are available. I will try and place everyone in their preferred location and with friends – but the earlier you let me know the better your chance.

Ideally please let me have an email and mobile number so that I can keep you updated.

Thanks all in advance.
