I want to volunteer! How do I sign up?
Volunteer registration opens around 40 days prior to each event and fills up quickly so check the schedule above and mark your calendar! Once registration is open, simply click “Register Now” button above and select your desired shift. We require a $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot, but we’ll return the entire amount after you complete your volunteer shift at the event. This deposit helps us reduce no-shows, and ensures that these very important positions are filled on race day with the most dedicated maniacs! Once you’ve registered, be sure to RSVP to your event on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to get important updates!
I’m not sure I can make it. How do I cancel my registration?
Volunteers play important roles at the races so it’s important that everyone who registers to volunteer actually shows up. Please don’t register unless you’re 100% certain you can make it to the event! If you sign up and then decide you can’t (or don’t want to) volunteer, you’ll lose your $50 deposit, even if it’s caused by something outside of your control like illness or unexpected work schedule changes. After all, the purpose of the deposit is to ensure that only those people who are committed to volunteering, regardless of what may come up, get the opportunity to do so. However, you can still get your deposit back if you find someone to complete your shift in your place. Simply transfer your registration by clicking the link at the bottom of your confirmation email.
If I pay for a participant registration now, can I get a refund if I register as a volunteer once volunteer registration opens?
No. As stated very clearly during online registration, we do not provide refunds for any reason other than event cancellation. If you’ve already bought a participant registration and want to volunteer instead, you can transfer your registration to someone else via the online registration system prior to the online registration cutoff date, or on site at the event with a copy of your photo ID (print or digital).
