Q: Will I be able to work at the same checkpoint as my friend?
A: Yes! Volunteers wishing to work together will be assigned to the same task/location.
Q: What facilities are available at checkpoints?
A: Checkpoints range from indoors with full washroom and kitchen facilities to wilderness campsites. Volunteers will be asked before being assigned to a checkpoint with limited facilities.
Q: How long are volunteer shifts?
A: Due to large geographic area covered by the race, we ask volunteers to commit to 6 hour minimum shifts
Q: I am under 18, can I volunteer?
A: Volunteers may be under 18 as long as they are accompanied by a supervising adult for the entire time they are out on course. High school volunteer credits can be earned in this manner.
Q: When will I be given the location of my checkpoint?
A: The race course is kept secret up until race day. Volunteers will be given the location of their checkpoint by the volunteer coordinators on race day.
