Marshalling is a great way to give something back to the sport you love, and we are immensely grateful to our volunteer marshal team for the part they play on race day at Lakes Sky Ultra and Scafell Sky Race.

We are particularly looking for individuals with considerable mountain experience; marshalling experience and/or first aid or medical knowledge.

As a member of our marshal team, you can expect the following:

  • Some marshals clothing/uniform from our headline sponsor
  • Free entry to a future edition of Scafell Sky Race or Lakes Sky Ultra (subject to vetting), or to any other comparable mountain running event organised by us
  • Food and accommodation over the weekend
  • Fuel expenses for any driving you might do during the event
  • A bottle of Cowmire Hall Cider
  • Your own race-branded cowbell to ding-a-ling around the course
  • An event buff
  • A great time and chance to meet new friends

In return, we will expect the following from you:

  • A professional appearance and manner
  • A smiley face
  • That you wear the uniform and hi-viz clothing supplied
  • That you come ready with all the relevant clothing and equipment necessary (full details will be supplied email, once your application to marshal has been accepted)
