Volunteer Locally 

 

Triathlon and multisport events require a team of volunteers in order to make the event possible. These volunteers do a wide range of tasks ranging from pre-race packet stuffing to post-race teardown. Many race directors also provide opportunities for discounted race entries or other benefits for volunteers. At the end of the day, events often cannot be successful without the help that volunteers provide. To give back and support your local multisport community consider volunteering your time to a local race, or USA Triathlon Championship.
