Race Crew

Race Crew are vital to the success of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival with over 1,000 race crew delivering one of the biggest mass participation events in Scotland. Whether you are doing it to gain experience, build up your CV, raise money for charity*, raise funds for your club* or just to have a really great day, we really appreciate you being there and supporting the event and the runners in this way. Race Crew roles are numerous and varied, examples of which include Start Team Marshals, Course Marshals, Finish Area Crew and Hydration Crew. No particular experience is required to join the EMF Race Crew, we are just looking for groups of people who can help to deliver a truly memorable event for all involved and ensure that all runners have a fantastic event experience.
