To put on a race we need an army of volunteers. Volunteering is a great way for a beginner to get a feel for the sport, for a veteran runner to give back to the running community, or for a friend or family member to support a runner. We need volunteers for aid stations, packet pickup, setup, timing, and a variety of other tasks.

At Switchback Endurance we offer our volunteers a few perks to show our appreciation.

  • t-shirts or other swag
  • food
  • Lodging is available at Yankee Springs races.

We also offer discounts off race fees at future Switchback Endurance races.

  • Volunteers who work one shift (usually 4-6 hours) get 20% off a future race entry.
  • Volunteers who work two shifts get 50% off a future race entry.
  • Volunteers who take on a special responsibility for the whole race weekend, for example, aid station captains, get 100% off a future race entry. Contact Phil Stapert, phil@switchbackendurance.com, about this option.

You can sign up to volunteer on Ultrasignup, the same place where you would sign up to run a race. There you will find a list of volunteer shifts to choose from.
