As with all relays, volunteers along this course ensure that all participants are safe and supported throughout the event. So thank you very much for your gracious support!
Remember – every team with 2 or more members who live within 50 miles of any part of the race course must provide three (3) race volunteers. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and without physical limitations that would not allow them to perform the assigned duties.
Team Captains must register Volunteers through the Athlete Path Volunteer Registration Form.
Volunteer Registration is November 1, 2013 – March 5, 2014.

If a volunteer cannot fulfill their assignment, it is up to the Team Captain/Team to recruit a substitute. Volunteer substitutes are permitted up to and including race day (via email notification to GCI Relay) It is the Team Captain’s responsibility to inform the new volunteer of the Volunteer Training Session so they can attend.
If the volunteer substitution is after one of the two trainings, they must pass along the volunteer assignment information, duties, (and T-shirt) to the new volunteer. The substitute may then sign-in, representing the team on race day as long as they have the team number and show up at the correct time and place assigned. Failure of a volunteer to report to their assigned duty will result in team disqualification.
