How do I sign up to be a volunteer?
Signing up to volunteer is easy! Simply click on “EVENTS” from the top menu of our website and select “UPCOMING EVENTS.” Click on the event you’d like to volunteer for and you’ll see an event information/registration page. Select "Individual" registration, then input "1" for the quantity for VOLUNTEER. From there, select the Volunteer shift you'd like to sign up for and complete the registration form.
Are there age restrictions on volunteering?
We currently allow ages 16 and up to volunteer.
Can I choose my volunteer role?
At the moment we allow volunteers to select which shift time they would like. On Race Day we slot volunteers into which roles are needed the most, but do take into consideration special preferences or requests.
What do I get for volunteering?
Not only do volunteers get to be part of the most EPIC volunteer team on the planet, they also get a pretty sweet EPIC Volunteer T-shirt, free food and drinks, discounts on swag, a voucher for a free race, and the satisfaction of helping to make EPIC Series truly EPIC!
Should I bring anything when I come to volunteer?
Depending on the shift you select, you may or may not be standing out in the sun for long periods of time. Volunteers are encouraged to wear clothing and sunscreen that will keep them protected from the sun. We will be providing you with your EPIC Volunteer T-shirt to wear during your shift. It’s also a good idea to bring along an extra water source and some snacks, just in case.
Can I volunteer and race on the same day?
Yes! If you sign up for Volunteer SHIFT 1, you will be able to race for free at the end of your shift. Volunteers who sign up for COURSE BUILD shifts may also race for free on Race Day.
At this time, Volunteers who sign up for RACE DAY SHIFT 2 will be given a free race voucher to use at a future race, and may not race for free until the completion of their shift.
Can I bring my kids with me?
You may bring your kids to the event as long as they are being supervised by another adult who is not also volunteering. Kids under the age of 13 are not permitted onto the EPIC Course or ELITE Course.
How do I redeem my free race?
When you check out from your volunteer shift, you will receive a voucher with a special code that you can use to sign up for a future event. The code is good for a free entry into the EPIC Course Open Waves. If you plan to upgrade to the competitive waves or ELITE Course, e-mail for further instructions when you want to register. Volunteers who sign up for COURSE BUILD shifts or RACE DAY SHIFT 1 may race at the event they volunteered for by bringing their voucher to the Registration tent.
