Volunteer and help us make Run Jericho a success!

Run Jericho is an event created by and run by volunteers, and we always need willing helpers. Whether you can spare 30 minutes before the event to mark out the course, spend the morning as a marshal pointing runners in the right direction, or handing out water to tired runners when they return to St Barnabas … every little helps!
