From 7:00 am – noon on race day, Team Katie volunteers will help patrol the bike race path, cheer on racers, keep an eye out for hazards and make sure everyone enjoys a safe and fun triathlon.
Volunteers are needed along the entire 15 miles of the course, so please be prepared to provide support in any portion of the course. As much as possible, YWCA Bike Leads will work with you prior to race day to accommodate your preference of where to be positioned along the course.
We hope to have this slot completely covered by a sea of purple! Come cheer on your friends and show your Katie pride!
Look for "Bike Course: St. Kate's" when signing up. You can find an updated course for the bike race below.
There are also other volunteer opportunities if you do not wish to participate along the bike course.
Team Katie is now 100 strong, but there is always room for more! There is still time to get in on trainings and compete on race day with President Roloff. Why join?
