Race Event Jobs:
These are jobs that will be on going throughout the
entire event. These jobs will require that you be very familiar
with the rules and regulations.
This is one of most exciting jobs. These
volunteers will log-in racers who are starting their lap, and
will log-out those racers who are finishing their lap. They
will also be responsible for recording the times of each rider's
lap. This is a critical job as it acts as back up timing.
Volunteers will be positioned at various places on the
race course, to ensure that riders are healthy and happy, and
to maintain crowd control. You will maintain radio contact with
EMS and Base Station. This job requires all weather gear.
These people must be at least certified EMTs, and other
trained medical personnel who can assist EMS Staff in case of
injury, or any medical crisis.
Volunteers will make sure that the course markings are
still intact, make any necessary repairs, etc. on the course,
and install flashers for night laps. They will also help with
clean up during their shift and maintain the start/finish area.
Setting up for the event is a tremendous undertaking.
If you are planning to arrive during the week before the event,
we could use your help setting up the tents, wiring the base
area for electricity, setting up chairs and tables, installing
signage, course marking, etc.
When the race is over, the event isn't over. When all is said and done, the glamorous task of wrapping
up from the weekend's activities must be completed. Breaking
down the venue, taking down the race course, tidying up the
campground, trail repair etc.
