Volunteer Information

Cascade Lakes Relay

Team Volunteer Requirements

All CLR 36, CLR 24 and Walk Relay teams are responsible for providing 2 volunteers.  Ultra Teams provide 1 volunteer.  High School teams and 1-2 person teams are not required to provide a volunteer.

To fulfill the volunteer requirement, teams may choose between the following options:

  1. Supply Your Own Volunteers – provide 2 volunteers who are available any time Friday or Saturday to work a 6-8 hour shift out on the course.  Volunteers can be assigned to a morning, afternoon, evening or overnight shift on either day.  We do our best to assign volunteers based on locality (i.e. if your volunteers live near the start, we will try not to assign them an assignment near the finish); however, we can not guarantee volunteer shifts or locations.
  2. Hire-a-Volunteer (HAV)donate $300 ($150 per volunteer) so that we can partner with local charities and community groups who will provide volunteer(s) on the course for your team. 100% of your funds are donated to these worthy organizations.
