Volunteers help make the event possible. They are often the most memorable feature of the race for our athletes.
Each year, our army of 300+ helpful, energetic, friendly volunteers help feed and water runners, sign them up at check-in, rake leaves off the trails, drive boats, mark over 100km of wilderness terrain, assist media, give out hugs and bandage blisters.
Applications for volunteer positions will open closer to the event. Keep an eye out on our social channels for an announcement.
If you are a group looking to volunteer, register your interest via email at email@example.com
