Dave Smith and Catherine Leonard are Race Directors and they need help leading up to the races and also help on the day.  The races require many marshals both on course to manage the aid stations and direct runners, at the start / finish area to ensure the roads are kept safe for runners and traffic and at the Po Leung Kuk to assist with the number bib collection, baggage and post race souvenir distribution and the post race clean up.  There are also jobs to do before and after race day, particularly the Saturday setting up the administration area at Po Leung Kuk and taking supplies out on course.   So please do contact us via the avohk enquiry email catherineavohk@gmail.com if you can help out.
