Over the past 15 years, the MOMAR has attracted some of the most incredible volunteers who have dedicated their weekend to be part of an adventure filled weekend. This year’s race is on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, in the Village of Cumberland.
The MOMAR volunteer experience requires an enthusiastic commitment, but in exchange you will gain valuable experience, make new connections, and experience the thrill of adventure racing up close. We would love to have you as a part of our team this year! Bring your friend too!
All volunteers for the event will receive a Mind Over Mountain Adventure Race event shirt, entry to our infamous post-race party plus a delicious dinner. Come and experience the excitement that comes from volunteering at such an incredible event!
To get the benefit of coming to our Saturday banquet, one of your shifts MUST be on the Saturday! Feel free to sign up for more than one shift!
For more information, please contact our Volunteer Manager, Lisa Au, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (604) 765-7702.
Travel the course beforehand and setup checkpoints, markers, and course directions.
Setup/Tear Down & Supply Management
Have an eye for details? Assist with the setup & teardown of the start/finish line to make it look spectacular and help keep all the supplies organized.
The medical team is a very important part of adventure racing. They are there for any emergency that may arise. Medical teams are strategically positioned in various locations throughout the course in order to have the best accessibility for a quick response to any area on the course for any emergency. If you have any first aid, CPR, or wilderness first aid, and are interested in helping out, this could be the position for you. Qualified medics are also needed at transition checkpoints to help out racers if needed.
The registration volunteers are tasked with checking in registered participants, collecting waivers, and handing out race packages at the Riding Fool Hostel.
Course Marshals are located at various points along the course. Duties for this position include setting up the checkpoint, recording the teams as they pass through, keeping an eye out for any racers in trouble and if necessary, reporting anything needed to the safety team or race central. All checkpoints have at least 2 people.
Have an eye for catching the right moment? We are looking for talented photographers to help us both on and off the course! On course, catch all the racers in action. At the finish line, catch the memorable moments as the racers cross the finish line and celebrate.
Transition areas are key checkpoints in which the teams switch from one discipline to another, for example from kayaking to biking. You will be in charge of organizing equipment as teams pass through the transition area. We also need timekeepers at these checkpoints as we time each stage of the race!
Be a part of the many tasks at Race Central! Duties may include timekeeping, handing out medals & collecting passports from all the racers, setup/teardown, etc.
