RACE organisers are appealing for more volunteers to help out at the rescheduled Alloa Half Marathon next month.

The event was postponed for the first time in its 36-year history under unprecedented circumstances in March when severe weather and snowfall made running on the Wee County’s roads unsafe.

Race director John O’Malley and the organising team from Alloa Round Table managed to reschedule the annual spectacle for Sunday, June 3.

A lot of work has been undertaken since to make sure it will run smoothly, however, a lot of the original volunteers will be unable to attend this time around.

Marshals are needed to supervise the road closures with the route taking in most of the Wee County, starting and finishing at the Leisure Bowl in Alloa.

Other roles are available too, ideally, volunteers should be adults, but there is no age restriction. Anyone under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult.

The start time has been pushed back by an hour, to the 10am slot used in pervious years. This is to avoid a clash with the Stirling Triathlon on the same day.

Anyone looking to volunteer can get in touch via the Alloa Half Marathon Facebook page with the organisers saying: “If you could bring a friend or friends, even better.”

Alternatively, email 2018@alloahalfmarathon.co.uk to express an interest.
