As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on our members to volunteer at events. Every event requires volunteers to make sure everyone has a safe, enjoyable run. We ask all members to volunteer at one event (or more if you choose) per calendar year to make this possible.
By volunteering at our events, you’re not only giving back to the community and contributing to the success of the club, but you’ll meet other club members and see what goes on behind the scenes to bring together an event. It’s always a good crowd and we make sure our volunteers are looked after (mainly with a healthy supply of lollies!) Also, we’ve introduced an 8min/km pace for event runners, so we can guarantee you won’t be on course all day…!
There’s a wide range of volunteer roles, from course setup to lead cyclist. Some roles allow you to volunteer and still have time to run at the event, depending on timings.

Volunteering couldn’t be easier. Once you’ve expressed your interest for an event, you will receive a volunteer pack nearer the event date which outlines your role, time required and other important information to help make the experience a rewarding one.
