XTERRA Volunteers



One of the critical ingredients in a successful triathlon is volunteers. Volunteers make it possible to conduct a safe, well-organized event. We need volunteers in a variety of areas. In all cases, volunteers will find their task fun and exciting. At the end of the day, they’ll feel like they made a valuable contribution to the success of the race. They will also feel appreciated – triathletes are known to be a very appreciative group. It won’t be unusual for many participants to thank you for your contribution during the race.


The various volunteer jobs are listed below – followed by descriptions to each job. If you’d like to help us out, simply use the Volunteer Form at the right to let us know how you would like to help.
