Sunday June 2nd- The Dorking Tens - Help is Required!

Updated: Apr 13, 2019


To all club members:


The Dorking Tens, the most important event in the club’s calendar, is fast approaching and we need an army (or tsunami) of volunteers to make it a success.


It is an unwritten club rule that if you are going to enter one of the races, you are expected to provide a family member to help with the event or you can volunteer for one of the pre-race jobs yourself.


However, we are in need of additional volunteers, so please contact David P without delay! david@4pg.co.uk


Let him know if you would like a job you have done before, or a job you have not done before, and he will do his best to assign you your request.

We are asking for volunteers for the following important roles
