We welcome volunteers to Ranger Ultras races.

Our races and challenge events are organised in a low-key style which trail runners and our guided clients tell us they love. We keep entry fees low as possible. Enabling participation to be as financially accessible to as many trail runners as we can. So although you’ll not see overhead gantries and lots of razzmatazz, we do take pride in offering great value, great days on the trails and in the hills. With a welcoming atmosphere and a friendly team.

There are various roles available:

  • On course marshal / refreshments / safety team
  • On course sweeper
  • Race HQ race times & results board
  • Race HQ hospitality
Sweeper Team
HQ Team – Finish
Hospitality & Presentations


In return for a day with us, as a sincere thank you:
We offer free personal entry for you (i.e. not transferrable or given away to another participant) into any of our Ranger Ultras’ one day trail races or Ranger Expeditions’ guided open group challenge walks (see below).

One full event day volunteering equals one complimentary entry for you on a future one day Ranger Ultras trail run or Ranger Expeditions guided walk. You also can ‘save up’ volunteering credits.
For example:
Two volunteering days = Entry to both days Peak District South & North (not including the at cost accommodation).

You can also ‘save up’ volunteering credits towards the PB270 & PB137 Trail Challenges.
We have to treat these slightly differently as we take on significantly higher costs to organise.
For each volunteering day you can claim £50 off the…
PB137 entry fee up to a maximum of £100
PB270 entry fee up to a maximum of £200

Your credits can be claimed against any future event.
Sorry, credits can’t count retrospectively (i.e. refunds on previously entered events) as significant unrecoverable event costs, 3rd party booking and card fees have already been incurred.

We will also cover reasonable local travel expenses.
Please speak to us first, especially if you’re more than an hour’s drive away from the venue’s Race HQ.
A couple of exceptions are:
1) For multi-day events, if participating as a runner on one day then volunteering at the same event, we would not expect to refund travel expenses to and from the event.
2) Similarly, if travelling to an event with participants who are running at that event, we would not refund travel expenses.
