To make the challenge and the marathon a success, we need volunteers. And, the more volunteers, the better the marathon will be.

This showcases the island and, if runners like it, they will spread the word and more participants will come in future years, which means significant tourism for Islay's businesses. 

Volunteers are essential. They help to provide a safe and fun race.

As a volunteer for the Islay Single Malt Marathon, you will have the opportunity to make a contribution to your island and to share your enthusiasm and culture with others. 

Being a volunteer takes only a few hours of your time and makes you feel good that you’ve helped support activities for the children of Islay.

Volunteer jobs are not complicated and you can choose something that appeals to you.

As a show of appreciation, all volunteers are invited to the ceilidh, on Sunday evening following the marathon.
