Race Crew Volunteers are just as crucial to the Derby 10 Mile as the runners. Without volunteers giving up their own time and helping out, there would be no Derby 10 Mile race. The volunteers ensure that the race is organised safely and effectively by directing the runners, clearing the road ahead for the runners, ensuring vehicles do not cause a risk to the runners on the course, distributing drinks to hydrate the runners during and after the race, distribute the post race items for the runners, assist any runner who may need attention, direct runners and spectators before, during and after the event to the desired locations, etc.
