The role of a Volunteer at Connor’s Run is to primarily ensure the safety of the participants on course, pointing them in the right direction whilst offering lots of enthusiastic support as they go in the form of Hi 5’s, cheers, applause, whistles, clappers etc – giving as much noisy encouragement as possible.

Connor’s Run is a true celebration!
