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 and ADIRONDACK 540, 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
Make sandwiches
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...

Our job is not over when the event ends. Below is a list of things we can use help with afterward:

Break Down & Clean up Checkpoints
Clean up Event Headquarters
Help with Post Event Activities (Award Ceremonies, Meals, Etc.)
Return Borrowed or Rented Items
Submit Results and Event Summaries to Sanctioning Organizations
Complete Paperwork and Other Office Work

We usually get several requests from out of town riders looking for local people to support them during the SARATOGA 12/24 and ADIRONDACK 540. 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.
