Around 100 students will be supporting the annual Derby half marathon, business team run and mini Ramathon fun run which will be held in June.
Derby College Assessor Ed Watkins explained: “We have been involved in this and many other annual events for several years and it is part of an ongoing programme of work experience for the students.
“Many of our students are planning careers in the public services including the Army and Police and in the security industry so the problem solving skills that they have gained will be invaluable in their future careers.
Ramathon Race Director Richard Kay said: "We have a fantastic relationship with Derby College and are very grateful for their support again this year.
"The students' role on the day is invaluable - ensuring that the runners have safe passage around the route and that the thousands of spectators are able to enjoy the action and cheer on their family and friends."
