WHAT DOES A SPARTAN VOLUNTEER DO?
Spartan Volunteers indispensable at every Spartan Race. As a Spartan Race volunteer, you will ensure that our racers and spectators have an epic experience.
Your efforts make the Spartan Race the best obstacle racing series, and ensure a great experience for thousands of participants. Spartan Race would not be what it is without you and your motivation!
We have different missions for you as a volunteer: on festival area, on the race, on registration…
Spartan Volunteers work closely with Spartan Race staff.
Days open to volunteering: Volunteering is possible from Wednesday or Thursday (depending of the event) till the day before the event to help the organization to finalize the details to offer the best race ever to the participants.
And of course the day(s) of the race, Saturday and Sunday (if there is a race on Sunday). We also need help the day after the race to make the inventory, clean…
So you can register the day of your choice and even for several days, it will then take the registration process several times with your same account. Below are the different missions during the race day:
- 1. Management of Obstacles: control the security on obstacles, encourage Spartans, control penalties (Burpees), control the participants flow.
- 2. Registration: Welcome of participants, register the participant and give the Spartan package.
- 3. Management of the Bag Check: Welcome of participants, reception and distribution of racers’ bag.
- 4. Start and Finish Line operations: Final aid station, t-shirts distribution, management of the flow, organization of the start and control.
- 5. Aid stations: hand out drinks and snacks to the racers on the course
As a volunteer, you will work closely with Staff members, and will have an inside view of the organization!
