Volunteer

Thanks for your interest in volunteering at the Winter Edition! Give back to the community by supporting recreational events, get involved and meet friends, or support a friend who is racing. Volunteers receive a free 1/4 zip race shirt, Honey Creek Inn chili lunch and $15 (more for longer shifts) off a future Michigan Adventure Racing event for themselves or an immediate family member.

Register here:

The normal shift is from about 7:45 am until 12:45 pm. Normal/full shift volunteers are most often stationed at challenges to explain them to racers and punch their passports when they have completed the challenge. You may also come at 7:00 am to help with check in if you wish.

We may also have some set-up/morning shifts from 5:30 until 10:00 am. Volunteers help set up the start/finish area and get racers checked in.

Occasionally we need volunteers to help with early check in on Friday at Gazelle Sports Grand Rapids from 4:00-7:00 pm.
