 Riders

As you know the Marlow Red Kite Ride is on Sunday 31st August, which is rapidly approaching.  This is our biggest event of the year and we expect 600 entrants.

The feedback from participants last year emphasised how welcome the helpers made them feel, and we want to make sure that we match that welcome this year.  We need you all to volunteer your time during the day, and maybe also in preparation the day before. There are a lot of roles that need doing, such as helping with parking and registration, running the feed stations, marshalling at key points, managing the start and finish zones, and catering before and after the event as well as the clean-up and packing away of the day’s events.

Please can you send me an email at phil_c@marlowriders.org.uk to let him know whether you can help, ideally all day but also if you can only help for a limited time (e.g. in morning or afternoon only).  If you have a preference for roles, or had a role last year and want to do the same again this year, please let me know that as well.  If you could reply with the time and duration available and give me as much info about when you are available and what you can do, it will make my life much easier in trying to sort out who does what!

As part of the uniform for the day, we are looking to get Marlow Riders Red Kite Ride T-Shirts made up and distributed to all helpers, so we also need to know your T-Shirt size.  These will be provided to all volunteers (who volunteer by Sunday 10th August) free of charge.  The sizes are:  Small 35/37, Medium 38/40, Large 41/43, Ex-Large 44/46, Ex-Ex-Large 47/49 and finally 3XL 50/52.  The T-Shirt style is a simple rib crew neck cotton t-shirt.  Please include your t-shirt size in your email.

Finally if you are First Aid qualified or have received First Aid training and would be prepared to help out with any injuries presented during the day, prior to seeking formal medical assistance, please also let me know.  I’ll then try to make sure we have some first aid cover at each location.

We really need you all to volunteer – success depends on you.

Thanks!
