we have all been warmed by fires we did not build & drunk from wells we did not dig

If you are looking to work hard around-the-clock for an entire week in a beautiful place to ensure that racers have the experience of a lifetime, we invite you to join our team of volunteers.  Perks include enthusiastic team, race swag, nightly accommodations at Sutton Place Hotel, catered dinners each night, etc.  

Some volunteer positions for the TranSelkirks Run may require more fitness and endurance than the race itself. Please be prepared for very long days - generally on your feet - working with others in all sorts of weather.  The work is HARD, but SO FULFILLING!

Even if you have volunteered in the past or you have contacted or discussed volunteering with the race directors, please register as a volunteer for 2019.  This will ensure that we have you listed as a volunteer for the week and you receive all communication regarding your role for the week.

We are grateful for all help.  Priority for accommodations and positions will be given to experienced volunteers who are able to commit for the entire week - arriving a day before the event (Saturday, August 24) until the day after the event (Friday, August 30, 2019).

 Our fearless forerunners start the day early, running ahead of all other runners to ensure that all markings are still in place and wait at key turnarounds before sweeping the course after all runners.
