Cheer Squad Volunteer

London Marathon 2023

Cheer Squad Volunteer

Come and make some noise by cheering at one of our events this year with Team CF!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of our Team CF cheer squad!  We would love you, your family and friends to become exclusive cheerers, a crucial part of supporting our wonderful participants throughout the year. 

Our event volunteers are just as important to us as those taking part in events – you don’t have to be a marathon runner to make a difference. Commitment is flexible, depending on your availability and the event timing. 

As a Team CF cheer squad volunteer, we have a variety of events you can choose from, to support Team CF participants. From setting up a cheer point at one of the many events where we have supporters taking part, or assisting at a checkpoint at our signature Great Strides™ walking challenge. Check out the events below:

"The atmosphere of the London Marathon is like no other and there's nothing more motivating than turning a corner as a sea of yellow comes into view. There will be times when runners "hit the wall" and hearing the encouragement from Trust cheer crews along the route really helped me to put those achy legs out of my mind and focus on getting to the finish line for Team CF"
