Swim! Bike! Run! Volunteer!
We’re looking for volunteers at our races, so please consider helping out. Please fill in the form below if you can volunteer and if you have a preference, what you’d like to do.
Registration –pre-race morning, 8-9 people to check off names, hand out race packages and timing chips (when provided) on race morning, and answer questions of eager or anxious participants.
Swim Course – for those who love the water, we need 6 or more kayakers/paddle boarders/canoeists to provide swim support and 2 swimmers to help Kim Young follow and support the last swimmers. Swim Captain is Kim Young.
Bike Course – we need up to 18 people to be out on the bike course making sure everyone stays on course and controlling traffic where needed. There will be professional flaggers working the two busiest intersections. Bike Captain is Craig Johnson.
Run Course and Events – about 10 people to guide traffic and runners, and 2-3 people to look after the water station (a good opportunity for parent(s) with kids who are old enough to hand out water). Run Captain is Danny Kermode.
Backup Timing – we can use about 4-6 people to do some backup timing in case there are any problems with the chip timing. This job will involve things like operating a stopwatch, recording bib numbers and times as people exit the water, come back from the bike, and cross the finish line, and collecting bib tags and chips from finishers. If you like to be in the middle of the action, this is a good job for you. Timing Captain is Connie Deane.
Transition Setup – pre-race Sunday morning, people to help set up the transition area by pounding in rebar, installing orange fabric fencing, setting up bike racks, etc. under the direction of Transition Captain Kenny Simms. If you’re volunteering for something else and have time, think about coming out early to help with setup.
Transition Assistance – a couple people to answer participants’ transition questions and help direct participants in and/or out of transition.
You can volunteer for more than one activity if they don’t overlap in time.
Take this opportunity to support our club and come out for the camaraderie and fun. Feel free to ask your friends, family, or neighbours to be partners in crime.
