Our passionate volunteers are the glue that holds our event together.
The work is physical, involves long, hot, dusty hours with early starts and late finishes. We state this so you have a realistic understanding of what to expect. The qualities that will serve you well are:
- a sense of humour
- a good work ethic
- being able to work without supervision
- have an ability to think on your feet and find solutions to unexpected problems
- be comfortable operating in a hot, dusty, windy and bush environment
If you have read this far and still want to volunteer then you are probably just the person we are looking for!
The roles we currently need to fill are:
1. Quad Bike Riders
You will need to bring a quad bike to the event and have experience in riding it in various conditions. We will provide fuel for the quad for the duration of the event. As a quad rider you will assist on the Pans. Your role will include setting up water check points, assisting medics in responding to medical incidents and sweeping the route for runners. You may also transport people around the race (sponsors, photographers etc).
The Pans are the best place on the planet to ride quads. You won’t forget the experience. We promise!
2. General Voluneers
As a general volunteer you will be available to the race organising team to be placed wherever you are needed. This will certainly include the setting up of the race village and all the associated infrastructure. It may also include manning a water check point, meeting greeting runners and their supporters. You will need to be willing to respond to all reasonable requests. Ideally you will self drive to site at your own cost but we can look to assist with finding a fit if needed.
3. Child Minders
We anticipate having children attending with their parents and they will need some entertaining and watching. The event will look to provide some support in this regard in the form of games, a plunge pool, face paint and so on. The volunteer will need to have experience working with children and provide references for this.Child minders
