You will be based around the course and it’s your support that will carry the #RatRacers forward. You will be part of a team manning an obstacle, encouraging our runners and keeping an eye out for any health & safety issues that may arise. Be loud, be cheerful and create a supportive and exciting atmosphere! You will be providing instructions and reassurance to participants and giving the organisers any feedback.

REGISTRATION CREW
