MAD Marshals

Volunteer Marshal Support


It’s not all about the taking part…

Mean & Dirty Events run many Gloucestershire based Mountain Bike Events for adults, children, novices and experienced riders.

This is not just down to the hard work we put in in addition to our day jobs; it is due to the help, dedication and commitment from all our volunteers. Over 95% of our team are volunteers, many of them have been with us for over 5 years, so we know how to put on a good event!

Year on year we get fantastic comments about our races, we also get lots of messages of grateful thanks to pass on to the volunteer marshals. There is nothing better when you’re competing than the passionate support from a volunteer!

We know we have a great race crew and a fantastic set of volunteers but we are always looking to make our events better so we will always want to expand our team of passionate, friendly and dependable people to guarantee the encouraging and professional atmosphere of our race series.

If you think this is you, we would love your help and commitment to come along and join us at any of our races.

All volunteers are either paid or receive a free entry to one of our events.  You will be provided with food and drink (hot or cold) to make sure that they are fully prepared for their fun and enjoyable day ahead.

What do volunteer Marshals do at the races?

All volunteer marshals have a key role during the race and that is to cheer on and encourage competitors during their special day.  In addition to this volunteers can be involved in any one of roles below:


  •  Registration
  • Car Park
  • On Course marshal
  • Finish line area

If you would like to take on more responsibility we have supervisor roles which will be reimbursed according to your experience.
Without our volunteer marshals, these events would not happen.

To join our volunteer programme, please email  with your contact details and which events you are interested in attending.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to welcoming you on board as part of our team.
