Walking Stars needs enthusiastic volunteers on Saturday 7th December 2019 to assist with event logistics, act as motivators on the course and support our 3000 strong participants.

We have volunteer roles suited to everyone. None require heavy lifting. All volunteers will receive instruction and support.  

Be part of either the Village Marshall Team or the Course Marshall Team.

Village Marshall Team

The Walking Stars start and finish lines, stage and food trucks will all be located at The Village at Alexandra Gardens. Various positions are required in The Village such as baggage assistance, registration assistance and volunteer check in assistance.

Course Marshall Team

Course Marshals will be situated at the start line, finish line and around the track where all the action happens. You’ll be cheering walkers on, creating a fun and positive atmosphere and providing support to participants.

Shift times

Shifts will be 4-6 hours starting between 6pm and 11pm and finishing between 9pm and 3am. Longer shifts will include breaks.
