Volunteer Job Descriptions

Event Set-Up: Join us Saturday, August 19th or early Sunday morning, August 20 to make sure that Winnemac Stadium is set up and ready to be used for racing! We’ll be making sure we have the proper signage, marking designated exchange and pit areas, and getting the festival area set up.

Registration and Packet Pick-Up: Help teams get signed in and registered on the morning of the event and make sure that riders receive all the necessary race materials.

Race Monitors: We want to know who wins! Our race monitors will help ensure that rider exchanges are happening in the proper area and that teams are staying in their designated pit areas. Race monitors will also be helping count laps! It’s easy to lose track during 100 laps, so we need some careful counters to come help us out.

Bike Monitors: Every team will be riding a bike from us, so we need our bike monitor volunteers to help check out bikes to the teams and make sure that every team is receiving the correct bike size. Bike monitors will also be checking bikes back in at the end of the day, so that we can leave with the same number of bikes that we came with!

Festival Volunteers: Help us in our festival area monitoring the beer tent or passing out snacks and water to race participants. We will also have a few festival volunteers helping us sell event merchandise.

Tear Down: Help us put away our toys after the event. We’ll need to pack up the festival, tear down signage, and make sure that we leave Winnemac Stadium as clean as we found it.
