WANTED: Volunteers for IRONMAN 70.3 Coeur d'Alene
Volunteers pass out water cups to athletes in the swim to bike transition area in City Park during a past year's Ironman event in Coeur d'Alene.
IRONMAN 70.3 returns to Coeur d’Alene Sunday, June 26, and local volunteers are sought to help make the day a success for everyone.
Lend a hand as triathletes conquer a 1.2-mile swim in Lake Coeur d’Alene; continue on to a hilly, 56-mile bike course; and end with a 13-mile run.
Volunteers are especially needed for bike spectator management and run course crowd control.
For bike spectator management, volunteers will help control the crowd of eager spectators. The shift is from 6-10:30 am.
Run course crowd control volunteers will do the same, but this type of service keeps volunteers in downtown Coeur d’Alene and provides a great opportunity to observe the triathletes. There are four different shifts, none longer than four hours, and they all begin after 8 a.m.
“If you can work more than one shift, we would be so grateful,” said organizers, in a news release.
All volunteers will receive a T-shirt, food at the volunteer tent and hydration support.
To get involved, there are a few ways to register to volunteer:
• Visit the IRONMAN 70.3 Coeur d’Alene website and scroll down to the VOLUNTEER box.
• Visit the local volunteer webpage: https://ironman.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer/?id=59834
Or call Michelle Haustein, volunteer director, at 208-651-4797.
