Volunteer Roles:

  • Participant race bib Distributor
    You will liaise directly with the participants. Each runner should arrive at the registration desk with a confirmation email or SMS which contains their bib number. Race bibs will be collated in alpha-numeric order in boxes behind the counter which you will have to locate. You may also provide participants with a sponsor goody bag.
  • Help Desk Advisor
    You will assist participants with any enquiries they may have. An Information Pack will be provided to help assist you to answer the enquiries.
  • Baggage Drop Off 
    You will assist in the drop off area for participant clothing baggage. Participants will arrive at the baggage area with their clothing and belongings. These items will be taken out from whichever bag they are brought in and placed into a provided plastic bag. The participant will then hand you their bib number baggage sticker which you will place on the bag with their contact number. Baggage is then placed into the correct tubs for event race day.  
  • We will also need assistance at the end of the day to assist with packing up the bags for transfer to the event day venue.
