Volunteer Registration

This is a new volunteer registration.


Direct and help racers as needed, various locations along race course. Knowledge of the Palos trail system and mountain biking is strongly recommended. Course marshalls will need to transport themselves to their assigned locations which could be several miles from volunteer check-in and not accessible by car. As such, course marshalls are advised to bring their bikes and/or hiking shoes so that assigned locations can be easily accessed. Course marshalls will be provided with walkie talkies but are also asked to bring their cellular phones as backup in case contact with the race organizers is required. Course marshalls should plan on checking in with volunteer registration a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the start of their shift.
