Volunteers help make the races possible for athletes to compete in a fun, safe, and organized way. We believe that those of you who give your time and energy to help support these races should be treated as well, if not better than, the racers. We work hard to make sure that you receive the resources necessary to be a successful volunteer, that you’re safe, as comfortable as possible, and that you have a great time outside with us and the racers in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
