Volunteering roles at Glow

Event site volunteers

Volunteers who are based in the event site can take on a variety of different roles throughout the evening, including:

  • selling merchandise
  • answering walker questions.
  • helping keep the event area clean, tidy and safe
  • signposting walkers to the correct areas.
  • handing out medals at the finish line!

Route volunteers

Route volunteers are absolutely essential to giving walkers a brilliant experience at the event. People in these roles will be positioned at key points on the walk route and will:

  • ensure walkers are heading in the right direction.
  • motivate and cheer people on as they complete their Glow walk.
  • monitor and report back on route progress to the event team.
  • walk at the back of each wave of walkers to ensure everyone finishes the walk safely.




What you'll receive

When you volunteer at Glow, we'll provide you with:

  • your own volunteer t-shirt.
  • a snazzy branded hi-viz vest.
  • a full event briefing before walkers arrive so you know lots about the event and your role.
  • a hot drink, snack and bottle of water.

If you have any questions about volunteering for us, check out our event FAQs for more information.
