As a Vollie, you will play a vital role in the community and make a real difference to peoples’ lives. Grab your gang (or meet new friends on the day!) and join in for a fantastic day of fun and fundraising.

Choose from below the shift you would like to volunteer for:

The two key roles are:
General volunteer at the start, checkpoints, or finish line – roles will be rotated and may include: Assisting with team change administration; Start/Finish line support set-up or pack-up; Checkpoint support/set-up and pack-up; and cheering and directing trekkers.

Marshalling on the course: You will be given a map/brief and can provide directions and information to participants out on the trail and assist with road crossings where required, all the while encouraging and cheering teams as they pass. Great fun to do with a friend.
