Functional Areas

Volunteers support the organising team in various functional areas along the course or right next to the start and finish line. The following descriptions, will give you an idea of the different tasks:

Race marshals

Our courses pass through the streets of Berlin. Thus, roadclosures and alternative routing are essential that the participants can complete their run without hindrance. At crossraods volunteers support the police. You take care that pedestrians, bicyclists and car driver will not interfere with the competition.  In confusing situations you guide the participants the right direction. Additionally you give event information to the public.

Food and beverage

There are several refreshment points along the course and behind the finish line. Snacks and drinks are placed for the participants to replenish. You and your team take care that there is sufficient and fresh supply available for everybody.

Race document collection

One or two days before the event participants are asked to pick up their race documents at a central place in Berlin. You will organize all the information including the BIB numbers in bags and hand them out to the participants. Moreover, you update the runners with the latest information.

Clothing storage

On the event day participants can store their clothing bags in our tents. Before the race starts they hand in their clothes and you organise them decently in our storage, after the race you take care that everyone gets back the right clothing bag.

Ceremony & Medals

Finishing the race participants are exhausted but happy about their achievement at the same time. You are waiting just behind the line to acknowledge their performence and hand over the finisher medals. Additionally, supporting our team with the preparations of the medal ceremony is part of your volunteering.
