VOLUNTEERS

True Grit volunteers can be the first face thousands of participants see. Whatever you do as a True Grit volunteer, you are the backbone of making the event run smoothly for all our Gritters. Remember, if you’re up for it you can run for FREE on the other day of the same event weekend!

WHAT YOU DO

ROLES

  • Registration to provide the first welcome to the thousands of True Grit participants.
  • Bag drop is a key part of the participant experience, and typically the last stop before Gritters make their way to the start line.
  • Finish line to help organise finishers t-shirts and drinks for participants.
  • Obstacle marshals are people who help to encourage and motivate our participants and teach them technique as they embark on a 10+km challenge, with 30+ obstacles. True Grit volunteers, need to show some grit at times just like our participants. We start early with kick off at 6:45am. We need people who are up for the challenge and who are prepared to work with others.
