It’s time for everyone to sign up for the main fun run event in Melbourne for 2013. That event of course is The 2013 Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids.

As you are participating in the challenge of Run for the Kids 2013 and enjoying the best of Melbourne, spare a thought for the hundreds of patients at the Royal Children’s Hospital, who aren’t able to run, walk or skip their way around the unique course.

Each will benefit from your involvement in the event, as money raised will fund projects, research and technological innovations to ensure that every child receives the very best treatment now and into the future.

By doing a little bit more, you can help so much.

Run for the Kids Volunteers!


This enormous event of 35,000 entries could not be staged without the dedication and hard work of volunteers. Behind the scenes the event relies on more than 800 volunteers to man drink stations, street corners and the finish line to assist and cheer the runners on their way.

Volunteering is a terrific way of being involved and helping to raise vital funds for the 2013 Good Friday Appeal.

Lunch is provided, and all volunteers receive a free tshirt.

Volunteers for the 2013 Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids must be 16 years of age on 24 March 2013 and will be required to attend one of two Information and Training Sessions in February-March 2013. Further details regarding training sessions will be provided.

Course Marshal – On Course
Course Marshals are assigned to designated areas along the run course to help ensure that the course is safe for participants to compete on. The course is divided into 6 Sectors. Each Sector will have a Sector Leader and these Sector Leaders will be issued a radio and will brief and deploy individual marshals to the course.

Drink Station Assistant – On Course
Volunteers are deployed to drinks stations on the course to ensure that runners are provided with drinks while participating in the event. Volunteers set up drink stations before the runners arrive by laying out cups and filling with water. They then provide drinks to runners, and remove empty/used cups.

Start / Finish Drink Station Assistant – Race Village
Volunteers provide drinks to runners at the start line. After the long course starts, they pack up the start line drinks station and move to the finish line. At the finish line, volunteers provide drinks to runners, and remove empty/used cups.

Start Line / Finish Line Marshal – Race Village
Volunteers help direct entrants to the correct marshalling zone areas at the Start line. Each zone is clearly indicated with feather flags & signs corresponding to coloured race numbers. When the runners cross the finish line they will be exhausted and excited. They will most likely want to stop, rest and chat. This can create a very congested finish area. It is your job to congratulate and thank them but to then kindly ask them to keep moving as they need to pass through the back-up timing system to ensure their time is captured.

Timing Chip Removal Marshals – Race Village
Volunteers assist competitors to remove their timing chips after they cross the line and collect them in the supplied tubs. Clippers will be provided.

Information Assistant – Race Village
A specific Information Tent will be set up in the Village as a central point for general questions and enquires. Some volunteers are required to staff the tent, some will be positioned on stands to help direct people and others will wander through the Village and help answer people’s questions.

Baggage Services Assistant – Race Village
A fenced baggage storage area will be set up in the village with entries at one end and exits at the other. Volunteers assist with managing the flow of participants through this area.

Volunteer Services Assistant – Race Village
Volunteers will be responsible for checking in all volunteers for the event and providing them with meal vouchers and tshirts.

Do it for Charity!!!

This is the biggest fun run event in Melbourne each year and helps raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
In 2013, we hope to raise more than ever for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. Every little bit helps provide the Hospital with funds for new equipment or facilities.

Each donation is recorded on your fundraising page along with messages of encouragement from your supporters, and all the administration is taken care of by Everyday Hero, so you’ll still have plenty of time to train for race day.
