perspective on what you need to do to get ready for your first race. In some ways, a volunteer can learn more than a
competitor in the race as volunteers can see the successes and pitfalls of all the teams in the race. A first time competitor
languishing near the back of the pack will only learn through rumours what the lead teams did differently to be so far ahead.
Also, for those that do not know many people interested in adventure racing, becoming a volunteer can throw you into an
entire community of active and would-be adventure racers making the search for teammates that much easier. Volunteers
that commit to and spend at least 8 hrs (for the Sprint/AR races) or 3 hrs (for the trail races) in one day may receive a free
tshirt (1st 20 volunteers), free camping, free meal(s) and discounted future race registration fee (up to $45 off).
