Primarily we need volunteers to help make our participants feel welcome and encouraged along their journey to the finish line. Some of our teams are walking 43km, so they need as much support as we can muster.
COURSE MOTIVATIONAL MARSHAL
You will be given a location along the trail where we would ask you to sit/stand and provide support to participants as they pass by. Tell them what a great job they are doing and to keep on walking! Also, make sure they safely cross the road if they are getting tired and not checking for traffic properly. You are welcome to bring a deck chair, so don’t think you need to stand for the entire shift.
REST STOP HELPER
Your role will be to welcome teams to the rest stop, help participants find the toilets, water bottle refill and so forth. Wish teams good luck as they return to the course and show them which direction to go in.
