We need VOLUNTEERS for our 8th Annual Waldo County YMCA Family Triathlon Festival on Sat. May 20!

By Waldo County YMCA | Apr 11, 2017

ARE YOU interested in VOLUNTEERING for our upcoming Triathlon on Saturday, May 20, 2017?!

We have MANY, MANY great volunteer opportunities awaiting you!

~ Would you like to volunteer as a parking lot attendant?

~ Help hand out water to the racers?

~ Assist as a road guard for safety?

~ Help with our Youth Triathlon in the afternoon?

Adult, Teen & Junior Race: Road Guards & Water Stations: Report to Athenahealth’s main entrance for a meeting promptly at 7:15 a.m. Adult, Teen & Junior Triathlon begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends when the last participant finishes, typically around 12:00noon. Volunteers will help with manning specific safety locations, water stations and to help cheer on the racers throughout the course. It is very important we have enough volunteers located throughout the course for safety of all participants.

Youth Triathlon Volunteers: Arrive by 10:00 a.m. at the latest and report to Troy Howard Middle School for packet pick up and bike drop-off. Like the adults, the kids will start out swimming in the YMCA Tom & Sally Savage Pool Complex. After their wave is completed, they will be taken into the locker room where they will have a chance to dry off and change into biking and running gear.

Volunteers and parents will help usher the kids to the nearby bike course (a closed loop at the neighboring THMS parking lot). Kids will run on the Troy Howard Middle school's cross country course adjacent to the bike course. The racers will be cheered on by volunteers and parents during each leg giving them the encouragement they need to finish their triathlon!

If interested, please contact: Abby Ferrante at volunteers@waldocountyymca.org and let us know what you would be willing to help with on race day!

Our Triathlon is a wonderful community event to be a part of!
