Volunteers! We love them! Events simply would not happen without a huge number of volunteers putting out a helping hand. Just like most events, the Golden Ultra is also in need of some super stars to help us bring all the runners home safely with giant smiles on their faces.
There are lots of volunteering opportunities and we encourage you to select something that interests you. The more detail you provide on your sign-up form, the better! The volunteer sign-up form is now online (or click "volunteer" under the Details menu).
Here are a few of our critical and very interesting roles:
Aid Station - if you have a group of 5 or more people (and a vehicle) you can qualify to host one of our aid stations! We will provide you with all of the required supplies, a $150 donation to a charity of your choice, and a small budget to get some more food, costumes or bling to really make your zone memorable.
Course Marshal - Course marshals are a critical part of our safety plan. We need singles or pairs to stand on course to assist in directing runners in the right direction, recording runner numbers & times for our timing and safety program, and cheering. If you've got some knowledge of the Golden trails (or are good with maps) this could be a great role for you. It's also fantastic for somebody who can only volunteer for a partial day.
Course Crew - You like to combine your volunteering with exercise? Well... have we got a role for you. We need some keeners to help with marking and cleaning up the course. You get to do it all (on foot or bike) and you get some swag in return!
Finish Line - Ideal for the person who likes to get sweaty hugs and be on the front line of celebrating huge achievements. We need a few superstars to welcome runners to the finish, make sure they get some nutrition, refreshment and their finisher award.
Registration & Information - If clerical duties at a high rate of efficiency and cheer is your forte, we'd love to have you on our registration and information team. You'll be the front line of of answering questions, providing information and handing out bibs, swag and smiles.
The Golden Ultra is a three-day stage running race (or relay) in Golden, BC, Canada. Runners may participate in all three stages as a solo or part of a relay, or may register for any single or combination of two stages separately.
