Volunteers are an important part of the Vineyard Warrior Triathlon. Volunteers enjoy the camaraderie of being on the team to produce a premier athletic event.. Volunteers provide safety and direction to competitors, help with the control of spectators and local traffic and support the athletes at water stations at T1, T2, and every 1.5 miles of the run to the finish. These are just a few of the many ways you might volunteer; we look forward to hearing from you and the ways you can help.
In 2011 some very dedicated volunteers helped make the inaugural event a mammoth success. You may see them donning their "Volunteer Warrior" t-shirts. They also enjoyed free entry to the post race party; complete with Smoke n' Bones BBQ, Giordano's Pizza, Blake's Pies, ice cream, chips, drinks, Dunkin' Donuts coffee, and more.
Interested in volunteering for the second annual Vineyard Warrior Triathlon? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know a little bit about yourself and your interests.
Volunteers will be able to attend our post race party, get a free T-shirt, and earn bragging rights for all future events that they helped make Vineyard Warrior one of the premier triathlons in the country.
