30th March – 2nd April 2018

DW has been organised every Easter Weekend since 1948 by Volunteers.
We need a team of 300 people to help us safely run the race – every year!

Volunteering is a great way for previous competitors and support crew to give time back to DW. and help others realise their goals. It’s also an opportunity for future entrants to learn about the race, the course and the people that make DW unique.

Many volunteers come back year after year, passing on important skills and knowledge. Volunteering for DW can be hard work and great fun. But it can also be rewarding, addictive and you’ll join an amazing community.

Key volunteer roles needed during Easter Weekend include:

  • Devizes (Start) Team
  • Umpires
  • Safety Teams
  • Checkpoints & Comms
  • Marshals
  • Campsite crew
  • First Aiders
  • Westminster (Finish) Team.

    Many roles are flexible, so volunteer for a couple of hours or all weekend. To volunteer, get in contact including your availability, preferred location and role, by e-mail or DW Facebook page:
    Rachel Dennis – DW Volunteer Co-ordinator

    We’d like to hear from groups available to work as a team anywhere on the route, as well as each tide at the Westminster Finish Village (Sunday 16th AM & PM, Monday 17th AM).

    Thank you – DW Race Organising Team

    P.S. Date for your diary: DW will be 19th – 22nd April 2019
