At 9:30 on the morning of May 15th the first ever Varna Marathon will begin. Runners from the biggest athletic clubs in the country and abroad are expected to compete. Athletes from the nations with the strongest long-distance runners – Kenya, Ethiopia, and Morocco, as well as professionals from ten other countries, have already announced their participation in the race.
In addition to the classic distance of 42.195 km, the competition will also offer three disciplines intended for amateur runners – a 2 km city cross, and 8.4 km and 16.8 km runs.
It goes without saying, organization along the track should be spotless, and to achieve that, the team will need reinforcements as early as 7:00 am on Sunday, May 15th. Choose your position:
- securing the track – rolling out tape, directing pedestrians to the crossing points, putting the tape away;
- refreshment stations - handing out food and drinks to the runners, clean-up;
- event headquarters - various tasks;
- registration of participants and handing out flyers.
Volunteer orientation meetings are scheduled for May 12th and 13th at 6:30 pm in hall 17 of the Youth Center (Mladezhki Dom).
Ustrem Cycling Club is part of the organizing team and is responsible for volunteers and securing the track.
The marathon has already announced its intention to be a world-class event with some of the best runners. It could only succeed if the organizing team does a brilliant job. That's where you step in.
