Volunteers Are Awesome & Required

Simply put without volunteers The Alaska Relay would be impossible to put on. Volunteers serve critical functions from helping with the course set-up/breakdown to being the friendly face at each exchange managing team traffic. Each team is required to provide two (2) volunteers. More are gladly accepted though and we promise to be nice to them.

To see the instructions we provide for the volunteers and see what we require of them (it is not much really) check them out.

Volunteer Instructions

Two Options To Meet Team Volunteer Requirement

1. B.Y.O.V.

Bring Your Own Volunteer to meet the volunteer requirement. Remember that friend you helped move who "owes you one"? Well time to call in that favor. Even though volunteering for The Alaska Relay is a lot more fun than helping anyone move.

2. Hire-A-Volunteer

The simple solution for fulfilling the volunteer requirement is to participate in our Hire-A-Volunteer program. We work with local non-profits who provide volunteers in exchange for a donation to their group. This is a great way to support local groups and have your participation in The Alaska Relay give a little back to the community.
