Marshal at an event
By Rino Costanza
After an early start and a short trip from my home in Coventry, we arrived at Sutton Park, venue for the Birmingham Triathlon on Sunday 24th July, part of the UK Triathlon event series. It's been 4 years now since my dear friend and fellow volunteer, Dennis Brittain, and myself started volunteering for UK Triathlon and we enjoy the whole series of events as if each was our first one!
Experience helps but is not vital as we are one big happy family and guided by the Event and Race Directors Vic and Keith and the management team.
What makes us volunteer year in year out is simple! Putting in time to the world of sport so the events can happen for the competitors who train hard throughout the year and engaging with spectators so they have fun watching!
If you have thought about volunteering and not sure where to start then give UK Triathlon a call. You won't regret it. Or you may simply be attending as a spectator at a forthcoming event but fancy getting involved, then please do! It's a fun day out and you get to meet us, Dennis and Rino, the friendliest volunteers you'll ever want to meet! Go on ! You know you want to!! It's Olympic year after all!!
