Join the RNLI Volunteers at the Virgin Money London Marathon

Sunday 11 March 2018

The RNLI is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help cheer on our fantastic RNLI London Marathon runners who are raising money for saving lives at sea. This year's event takes place on Sunday 22nd April.

You'll be positioned along the race route either in front of Tower Lifeboat Station on Embankment or Canary Wharf. You'll be treated not only to the electric atmosphere of the London Marathon, but a great view of London and the Thames. 

Being part of a cheering team really makes a difference, as Mervyn Kinney, a member of the 2015 RNLI Running Crew, remembers:

"The team on the Embankment was overwhelming and so full of encouragement and just when I needed it."

We're also looking for enthusiastic volunteers to support the RNLI runners from the finish line to their well-deserved post-race reception. 

This is an opportunity to include volunteer experience on your CV, meet new people and support the RNLI Running Crew. And, of course, enjoy one of the UK's best loved sporting events from a prime position.
