Thank you for your interest in helping out on our events. Without our volunteers, these events would be next to impossible to do.

Your help will be greatly appreciated by everyone associated with each event, including myself, other volunteers and especially the riders. To download our full schedule of events, CLICK HERE.

All volunteers will receive a special t-shirt, food, drinks and a place to stay (if necessary) during each event they help on. Other items and awards may also be presented.

Click on the links below for more information on how you can help. And remember, you don't have to help for the entire event, just a few hours before, during or after would be great.

During the SARATOGA 12/24 we use checkpoints to keep track of each rider's progress. They are a center of activity, and a well organized checkpoint can give the rider a pleasant race experience. Here are some of the things you can expect to do at a race checkpoint as a volunteer:

  • Log in a rider's time of arrival and departure
  • Keep food and drinks organized and stocked
  • Wake up riders that are taking a sleep break
  • Answer questions about a rider's position and/or progress
  • Communicate with the other checkpoints on a rider's progress
  • And more...

  • Break Down & Clean up Checkpoints
  • Clean up Event Headquarters
  • Help with Post Event Activities (Award Ceremonies, Meals, Etc.)

We usually get several requests from out of town riders looking for local people to support them during the SARATOGA 12/24. If you're interested in helping out a racer, CONTACT US, and we'll inform you when we get an inquiry. This is a very exciting way to help out, and puts you right in the middle of the action.
