As with all SLSC events we are always in need of volunteers to help us make our events safe and fun. Being an SLSC volunteer is a great way to meet new people, put names to faces at the Lido and generally have a good time. If you can spare an hour or two on race days please do come and help our Aquathlon Team with time-keeping and marshalling the run route.
