Volunteering

Our triathlon events rely on friendly, approachable and enthusiastic people just like you to support our athletes, in a range of roles including registration, pool counting, transition, start / stop dismount, marshalling and generally helping make the event run as smoothly as possible.

If you could spare us an hour or two, or maybe the whole event, which usually lasts five hours from registration to the last athlete over the line, we've love to hear from you. 

In return for your help you will receive free entry into one of our events as well food and drinks on the day.
