The event relies on the goodwill of volunteers to marshal the course for the safety and smooth running of the event. All support of volunteers is greatly appreciated, please let us know if you can help.
ACTC would be most grateful if you could consider becoming a Sponsor by donating or contributing to the prizes or finishers reward. All sponsors names will be credited and publicised on ACTC website and at the event.
