Volunteer Opportunities for the 2015 Amba Hotels City of London Mile

Join the Run-Fast Mile Makers

The Amba Hotels City of London Mile is a non-profit making event. We are able to host the race with no entry fee thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and the volunteers who so kindly donate their time to help make the day a success.

We’re looking for more volunteers to join the team of Run-Fast Mile Makers* to assist at the 2015 edition of the race (Sunday 14th of June) and we would love to hear from you.
