Thanks for your interest in volunteering at a local XRACE event. We are always looking for event marshals.
sign up your group to FUNDRAISE through our registration form.
- 30-100 volunteers help out at each XRACE.
- Your group doesn't have to provide all of the volunteers we need- you can provide a crew of 6, 12, 24 or 36.
- The minimum volunteer group size is 6 people.
- Volunteer groups must include a certain number of "team leaders" (see below).
- The more volunteers you can organise, the more money your group will make.
Team leaders must have the confidence to be able to manage and control a small group of volunteers and make sure that each challenge is working smoothly. Team leaders has to make sure that the volunteers (especially our younger millennial's) stay on task and refrain from using cell phones.
These can be younger people (minimum age of 13) or less confident people who will look after smaller aspects of the event production. However, they do need to be positive and outgoing and look forward to being part of a fantastic event.
