We Need You!
Checkpoint Team For A Unique Fellsman Experience!

Published : 23 March 2023
Due to the retirement of one of our veteran roadside checkpoint teams, we’ve got an interesting vacancy that we need to fill.
Ideally, we are looking for a group of 8 (minimum, pref 10) with their own large marquee style tent, and other equipment (or access to), to come and set up at a roadside location in an elevated location (580m above sea level) with amazing views.

*See below for full kit requirements

The checkpoint would need to be ready and open from 2pm on Saturday afternoon (through to the early hours of Sunday morning) to welcome runners and walkers who need to be tagged and timed (with details recorded on our system) & fed and watered (we provide all the food etc., you’ll just need to prep and serve it!
Tin opener provided!
We have 26 checkpoints in total, mostly staffed by Scouters from the Keighley District and neighbouring areas. A not for profit event, we rely 100% on volunteers. We would love to have you onboard if you are interested! A small donation to your group would be made to help cover costs.
Please get in touch via messenger or email event@fellsman.org.uk if you think you could help!
If you’ve got any questions, or would like to offer help (individuals also welcome, we always have a variety of jobs both indoor and outdoor that need extra help on the weekend; please contact us through facebook messenger or by email at event@fellsman.org.uk
