What’s in it for me?
Aside from a sense of satisfaction, new friends, and a fun day out you’ll also be provided with:
- A meal if you’re joining us for a full day.
- A thank you gift pack which includes event merchandise.
- And of course lots of thanks from our athletes and our team.
Is there an age restriction?
We can accommodate volunteers of all ages, however volunteers under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult at all times. Not all positions are suited to our younger volunteers, but we definitely welcome all eager helpers and we will help you find a suitable role.
How long will my shift be?
Shift times vary depending on the role you would like to undertake. Many departments have a shift changeover, whereas in other departments we would love your help for the whole day.
When is the volunteers briefing?
Volunteer briefing and training will take place at a time prior to the event start. Please check your volunteer information pack for details. We ask that all volunteers are available for this briefing, as this is your chance to meet the event team and the rest of the True Blueys. You’ll also have the opportunity to take in all the information you need to know to have an enjoyable time in your volunteer role. If you would like to help out but can’t make the training, just let us know and we will assist you in finding a role that requires minimal prior training.
Where can I find out more information?
We will provide you with a volunteer information pack prior to the event that will cover everything you’ll need to know, however if you’d like to find out more about the event you can check out event details on the website.
I’m not really big on walking and I prefer being out of the elements, is there anything I can do?
Sure! You don’t have to be an athlete to volunteer at our events. Some positions do involve a lot of walking or standing for long periods in the outdoors, so we can help you steer clear of them! There are many positions that involve minimal standing, and a few that will keep you mostly undercover. If you do have any specific injuries or medical conditions that we need to account for just let us know and we’ll ensure that your role is suitable for you.
Sounds great. How do I sign up?
