Volunteer at Park2Park

Behind the scenes, the event relies on more than 100 volunteers to man drink stations, street corners, and the finish line to assist and cheer the runners on their way.
The Ipswich Hospital Foundation Park2Park could not be staged without our many volunteers’ dedication and hard work.
All volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. If you are under the age of 16, you will need a parent or guardian with you.
Please note that in line with Ipswich Hospital Foundations COVID-19 Vaccination Policy, all volunteers working onsite must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (2 doses minimum) and be able to show evidence on the day.
