- BEING VOLUNTEER!
Volunteering at a Spartan Race is extremely rewarding and you don't need previous experience to take part in this journey with us. We want you to be highly enthusiastic, motivated and to feel comfortable volunteering in a fast-paced working environment and most importantly, to have lots of fun and have a great experience.
Volunteering at a Spartan Race will give you unprecedented behind the scenes access to a race weekend. Not only do you get a free race pass, but you also get major bragging rights.
- HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Follow These Simple Steps!
Step 1:be sure to read through the Spartan volunteer faqs.
Step 2: select the race you are interested in to participate as a volunteer, and then fill out your information in mytrumin, our registration platform. Make sure to pay special attention when typing your email address, because this is how we will get in touch with you.
You will hear from your volunteer coordinator well in advance before the event, to then decide what shift you will work in and what missions you are up to.
You will receive periodic updates and final information from your volunteer coordinator the month before the race.
Step 3: pay close attention to your email inbox, especially as the race gets closer. Your volunteer coordinator will send you all final details, etc.
Step 4: Show Up! If you sign up, we’re planning with you! So we need you to really show up! If you don’t show up the race day without previous notification to us, not only does this potentially have a negative impact on the event operations but also we will need to register that for future sign up as a volunteer for you. But most important- you miss a unique opportunity.
I have a question that wasn’t answered in the faq, how do i contact the specific volunteer coordinator for my race?
All volunteer coordinators can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just make sure to include the race location you are interested in when you email.
