Get involved with Virgin Sport and the local host city community! It takes a village to make our Festivals of Fitness incredible, and everyone is welcome to join us. There are lots of roles available during the race and festival experience, so there is something to suit everyone.
What do I get in return?
In return for giving us your time, we'll give you breakfast or lunch and a Virgin Sport volunteer t-shirt.
How old do I need to be to volunteer?
Volunteers must be 13 years or older. All volunteers aged 13-17 must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver. Those aged 13-15 must be accompanied by an adult volunteer.
What time do I need to be there?
We have shifts available Friday, Saturday and Sunday at varying times to help accomodate your schedule.
Help Desk Assistant - Help Desk assistants ensure Sporters are ready to tackle their events by answering any and all queries from both participants and spectathletes. You should be computer savvy in this role!
Bib and Packet pick-up - Great opportunity pre-event, especially if you are running in the event.
Greeters - You're the fountain of all knowledge, welcoming runners and answering all questions they might have about the event. Show them the red-hot Virgin spirit by ensuring they know where to drop their bags and know how to get to the start.
Course Marshals - Be on the front line of the course as you marshal a section of the route. Perfect for those who have running experience and like to cheer, as they know just what support the runners need!
Start Volunteer - You'll be at the start, helping runners find their correct timing pen and ensuring spectators are not entering the area, as well as keeping the area clean and tidy.
Event Cyclist - As a Sweep Cyclist, you'll cheer on runners from the rear of the pack while providing on-the-ground support for Event Control. Lead Cyclists lead from the front, clycling alongside our elite runners!
Finish/Rewards Volunteer - Be one of the first to congratulate each runner crossing the finish line by awarding them their medal and handing out water, swag bags and other delightful surprises.
Water Station or Baggage Groups - Perfect if you can gather a team of 15+. You'll be keeping our runners hydrated by handling out that all important water at a drink station out on the course - and cheering 'em on! Or we'll put your orginazational skills to the test in the runner bag drop area within the race village. To register a group, please [email protected]
