Signing up to volunteer is easy! Simply click on “EVENTS” from the top menu and select “UPCOMING EVENTS.” Click on the event you’d like to volunteer for and you’ll see an event information page. Select “Volunteer” on the menu on the left side of the screen. From there, choose which volunteer role you’d like to sign up for and continue to follow the on-screen prompts to register.
Are there age restrictions on volunteering?
We currently allow ages 16 and up to volunteer.
Can I choose my volunteer role?
Yes! There are a lot of different exciting volunteer roles to choose from, from helping with bib packets and check-in, building the course, handing out medals, supervising at an obstacle station, taking photos, and much more!
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 role 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?
At this time, volunteers working a shift on race day may not race the same day. Having volunteers on the course to guide and cheer on Athletes during their run or giving Athletes a high five and hanging a medal around their neck at the Finish Line is so important and valuable to an Athlete’s race experience. We want our volunteers to have the same high quality, EPIC experience running through the course as all of our other Athletes do, and at the moment we do not have enough volunteers to replace the course volunteers, so there is no one on the course to guide or cheer for them or put a medal around their neck and celebrate with them when they finish. And that’s just not very EPIC.
However, volunteers who assist with bib packet pick-up and course build on days prior to race day may use their free race for that particular event’s race day.
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 any 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions when you want to register.
