Fountains 10K

30 Jun 2021


Dear Parents/carers,


The big race day is nearly upon us!


The Fountains 10k & Fun run is all set for Sunday 18th July!


Frantic final preparations are certainly going on behind the scenes, but the end is now in sight!


The Fountains 10k race is an incredible event that generates in excess of £10k in funds for the schools (Fountains and Grewelthorpe). After 18 months with very few fundraising opportunities, this is our one chance to try to raise some vital funds for our schools.


We just need a final push to make sure we have enough pairs of hands to help out on race day, so I have included a list below of the positions we still have available. If you are able to help out for a few hours on Sunday morning, or have any willing friends or family members we can persuade to help us out, then please let me know by emailing:


Expressions of interest to the email address above by Friday 9th July – although the sooner the better in terms of helping me to sleep at night!!

Sweeper vehicle for 10k Race

Your job is to follow the race at a discrete distance and to offer any assistance required to runners. You will be following the last runner and a first aider on a mountain bike.


Assistance is likely to be limited to picking up DNF’s (Did Not Finishers), whether due to tiredness, injury or more serious injury that may need to be attended to by a first aider first.

10.30am til 1pm

Unfilled Marshal roles


Marshals stay at a set point along the course for the duration of the race, and help to direct runners around the course, monitor traffic, and be a prominent visual reminder to traffic that there is a race happening (high viz best provided).

Clapping and general encouragement directed at the runners is also part of the job description!


A camping chair is advisable, plus any cow bells, tambourines, or cheerleading pompoms you might have lying about!

9am til 1pm


9am Marshal briefing

9.45 am = in position for fun run

10.45am = in position for main 10k race


1pm = race finish.


(please note – you may not be needed to marshal both the fun run and the main race. However the marshal briefing is still at 9am! Sorry!)

Parking marshals/traffic control

Direct cars from the village to the car parking field.


Prevent cars from parking in the village.


Coordinate parking within the car parking field, and/or in the overflow parking along Skelding lane.


Direct runners down to the race start via the one-way system.

9am til 11.30am

Helpers to fill goody bags with Medals, water bottles, bananas and chocolate bars

We need to fill the goody bags at Fountains school BEFORE 11AM  THURSDAY 16TH JULY so that they can be put into “Quarantine” for 3 days prior to the event.

Any time to suit you, at Fountains school from 12th -16th July
