Volunteer Registration

This is a new volunteer registration.


This position will be responsible for delivering supplies (water, snacks, bug spray, etc) to course marshals. Course Marshal Support riders should be very familiar with the Palos trail system (and not just the race course), bring their own bike and be able to safely and quickly ride their assigned portion of the course. Course pre-riders should also bring a backpack or other means (a burley would be awesome) to carry supplies. The Course Marshal Support riders should be familiar with the race course and be able to find their way back to Pulaski Woods via trails that are not part of the race course (once a race has started). Please check in with the Course Marshal Captain (at registration) 30 minutes before the start of your shift to receive your assignment. Times included below are approximate. The Course Marshal Coordinator will be in touch with each support rider approximately 7-10 days prior to race date with additional details and timelines.



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 Course Marshal Coordinator a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the start of their shift at the stone Pavilion at Pulaski Woods. Course Marshals should bring water, snacks and bug spray with them on their shift.
