Our volunteers

Our wonderful volunteers

We simply couldn’t deliver an event of the sheer size and scale of RideLondon without the help of our wonderful volunteers – they do an amazing job. If you fancy joining them for the 2022 event, read on for all you need to know about volunteering at RideLondon. 

Why volunteer? 

As well as feeling like part of an engaged and enthusiastic team, volunteering gives you the chance to experience the energy and excitement of mass participation events first-hand – it’s a great way to give something back to the community while enjoying yourself at the same time! 

We also offer our volunteers full training, support and advice, and provide kit, equipment, refreshments and more, depending on your role. 

But don’t just take our word for it – see what some of our volunteers had to say about their experiences in 2021: 

It was my first time volunteering and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was very special to share in the participants’ achievements – my hands and face hurt from all the clapping and smiling!

I had the best day. It was a privilege to be at the finish welcoming the participants home. Very emotional and so special to be part of the day.

How to get involved 

With roles ranging from baggage staff to course marshals there should be something to suit everyone – so if you’d like to lend a hand while soaking up the amazing atmosphere of our events (and meeting lots of very grateful participants in the process!), see how you can get involved… 

There are two ways to volunteer at RideLondon: 

As part of a group 

If you belong to a community group, charity, sports club or any other type of organisation that may be interested in volunteering, please email our team at volunteers@londonmarathonevents.co.uk with your name and contact details and we’ll be in touch. 

As an individual 

If you’re an individual who’s interested in volunteering at the event, simply register for an account with London Marathon Events volunteering via the button below to be among the first to hear when new opportunities become available.
