Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, plus it’s an opportunity to get a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look into what race day is like for our HFP Racing crew. Over 150 volunteers help make this weekend the success that it is!
But why should you volunteer? Volunteering is known to help reduce stress and can even make you healthier. Studies have shown that your emotions, like optimism, joy, and control over one’s fate, strengthen the immune system – so your positivity of supporting others on race day, can also help you stay healthy! Volunteering is also a great way to see if you might like to follow a career in event management. Overall, it’s a great way to give back to the community, to support your friends and family who participate and to be inspired by those around you.
There are many volunteer roles you can get involved with:
- Athletes Services (packet pick up / start and finish line)
- Transition security and support
- Course Marshals
- Water Station
- Operations Support
Volunteers need to be aged 16 and older. For volunteers ages under 16, we ask that they volunteer with a trusted adult.
For further information or if would like to volunteer as a group if you or have any questions please contact Elaine Boyd on firstname.lastname@example.org.
